Here we go! Today, the Jackets make their first stop on the road to the ACC Championship. The next three games are arguably the most crucial four-week stretch remaining on the schedule: today at VT, a bye week, home vs. Miami, and home vs. Duke. Three wins would be huge in getting the Jackets to Charlotte, as they could lose a game down the road and still own the tiebreaker over the top three contenders in the division (you might want to keep an eye on Virginia though).
Previews: If you are looking for pregame analysis, you've come to the right place; we've got you covered. Back in August, Joey broke down this matchup from a preseason standpoint and accurately guessed we'd be 3-0. Ben also kicked off a new weekly feature earlier this week with an article about Three Things to Watch For in this game and did a great job discussing several non-X's and O's factors that could play a part in this game. And finally, our buddies over at Gobbler Country wrote a Game Breakdown about how our offenses and defenses match up, which is definitely worth checking out.
