It may come as a shock to some UK fans, but unranked Virginia Tech is favored over our #8 Kentucky Wildcats. Why? Well, it may not seem like it, but the Virginia Tech offense is a very fast paced one much like our own. Shooting nearly 50% from behind the arc, and shooting over 50% as a whole from the field overall. This Hokies team will push it up the floor and challenge our defense at times.

I think that this will be a game that we end up winning by a 15 or more point margin. Even though this Virginia Tech team will push us at times, overall they will not be able to handle the firepower of the our offense. Their loss to St. Louis earlier in the year, and near losses to other less than perfect teams such as being taken to OT against Ole Miss, leads me to believe this.
I definitely would tune in though, it should be very interesting to see how this team handles this high performance offense.
