Hokies bowl speculation in full swing

Possible Florida bowl destinations abound for Virginia Tech

BLACKSBURG, Va. – The Hokies have reached the postseason with a 9-3 record, now they must await a bowl fate. Saturday's conference title game outcomes will sort out where their bowl destination will be, and who the opponent will be.
   Senior linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka has a idea how he would like the bowl selection to go.

   "I've heard a lot of teams-- like SEC teams in there and that's kind of where I want to go. I just want to play an SEC team and kind of show those guys that you know that the ACC is tough too. and that we can play with those guys.  So yeah, any SEC team is the team I want to play, " Motuapuaka said.

 Among the projections for the Hokies: The Taxslayer Bowl in Jacksonville vs Texas A & M or Mississippi State or South Carolina or the Citrus Bowl in Orlando vs Penn State or the Camping World Bowl vs Texas.
