BLACKSBURG — It was a wild six weeks for Virginia Tech.

The offensive fireworks fans expected in the preseason never came leading to an early end to Ryan Willis’ tenure as the team’s starting quarterback.

Tech suffered its worst home loss in four-plus decades only to bounce back the following week and beat Miami as two-touchdown road underdogs in one of the wildest games of coach Justin Fuente’s tenure.

The Hokies recent two-game win streak hasn’t filled the fan base with an abundance of confidence, but there’s no disputing that new starting quarterback Hendon Hooker provided a spark for the program.

Can it last? Tech has a big test this weekend with a resurgent North Carolina team and its talented true freshman quarterback Sam Howell.
