As he's been all season, Tyrod Taylor is the key to win against Stanford.

At 1-26 against top 5s and the ACC at 2-10 in BCS bowls – here we go folks…

  • 01/03/11 – Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Stanford Cardinal / ESPN/ 8:30 ET

Must-See Matchup,VT offense vs. Stanford Defense: Tyrod Taylor vs. Stanford front-7

If Taylor can post another monster game, the Hokies have a good shot.

The Cardinal have a balanced attack, and if the Hokies can keep Luck from picking them apart, they have a better shot at taking this one.

Watch 4: Stanford to show why they are a top 5 team

The Hokies are going to be there step for step, but I like Stanford’s strength across the board and how they played down the stretch.

The Pick: Cardinal 27 Hokies 24

ATS Section (45-44-1 to date)

We’re 4-3 straight up, but 3-4 ATS in ACC bowls…

  • Virginia Tech +3.5 vs. Stanford

Take to Bank %: 10%

We’re hedging a bit here, but the Hokies can stick with Stanford and maybe even get that extra score to pull it off.
