BLACKSBURG, Va. - The Hokies are coming off two straight losses and host Pittsburgh Saturday. The Panthers are 4-6 on the season but three of those losses were against ranked teams.
"Scary football team offensively. I don't know what their production is compared to last year, they've lost a couple of tight football games but they've got some weapons and they can hit all the spots and then they're traditionally one of the better offensive lines that we play and they're big and physical and I think they're pretty good up front," said Hokies defensive coordinator Bud Foster.
"We've just got to move the ball and finish drives so each drive we start we're trying to get a first down and get going and then stay on the field. And when we get into scoring position we've got to finish the drive off and get into the end zone," said center Eric Gallo.
Saturday is also senior day for the Hokies and the team wants to send them out with a victory in their last home game.
"That's the main thing we want to do. You know, really just end the season the right way, get these last two wins, well then win the bowl game. I feel like it means a lot," safety Deon Newsome said.
The Hookies will be without safety Terrell Edmunds after he underwent a season ending surgery on his shoulder
Kickoff for Saturday's ACC matchup is 12:20 p.m. in Lane Stadium.
