Hokies defenders earn accolades
Virginia Tech braces for a trip to undefeated Miami
BLACKSBURG, Va. – The Hokies survived the Blue Devils and the rain on Saturday to move to 7-1 on the season.
But there's plenty of work to be done to reach Charlotte and the ACC title tilt in December. Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente was matter-of-fact about the upcoming challenge at undefeated Miami.
"We know we have a tremendous challenge as a football team this week to go on the road and play a very athletic, and well-coached and undefeated Miami team at their place. We had a good workout yesterday, The kids are off today and hopefully we'll have a good week of preparation, " Fuente said.
Meanwhile redshirt junior defensive back Terrell Edmunds has been named ACC defensive back of the week after racking up eight tackles, a quarterback hurry and an interception vs Duke.
Younger brother Tremaine Edmunds has been selected as a semifinalist for the 33rd annual Dick Butkus award, presented to the nation's top linebacker.
Virginia senior linebacker Micah Kiser is also one of the 15 semifinalists.
