WVU victory in rear view, Hokies focus on Delaware

Virginia Tech hosts Delaware Saturday at Lane Stadium

BLACKSBURG, Va. – With the West Virginia victory in the rear view, the Hokies now turn their attention to Delaware, and a short week of preparation before the Blue Hens come to Blacksburg.

"Our team goal is to win every game of course and go 1-0 every week so the next morning we are like 'okay now it's time to focus on Delaware and forget about the West Virginia game,' now it's on to the opponent," said Hokies receiver Eric Kumah.

"Just a little bit less physicalness in practice to get the guys feeling better. Get their bodies healed, get their legs back, that sort of stuff so we'll cut back just a little bit," head coach Justin Fuente said.

Quarterback Josh Jackson had a solid debut Sunday, passing for 235 yards and rushing for 101. But the opener also revealed areas to improve.

"There's definitely some little things I think as an offense we need to improve on like third down and red zone we got to make sure we turn all those into touchdowns and on third downs just converting better is what we need to work on," said Jackson.

Kickoff is at Lane Stadium, this is the first meeting between Virginia Tech and Delaware.
