Everything you need to know about today's game in Blacksburg, VA.

Even fans sitting ten rows up in the west stands had to crane their neck upwards to see some of Smelter's catches last Saturday.

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.

Game Time: 12:00PM EST

TV Channel:ESPN (also viewable on WatchESPN)

Radio: 680AM/93.7FM (Note: make sure to listen to 92.9 FM before the game, if you can - you might hear a short interview with a certain someone from a certain site about a certain game....or, it's posted below for your convenience.)

Odds & Wagers: The Jackets are listed as 6 point underdogs, but several sites have GT at +8.
