The Hokies are coming off of a big come-from-behind 20-17 win against the Tar Heels that also was a winner against the closing football gambling line. Pelini’s Cornhuskers have started the season strong, winning by at least 23 points in every game to generate their unblemished record.
Frank Beamer and the Hokies originally intended to redshirt QB Tyrod Taylor this season, but the offense sputtered under QB Sean Glennon and Taylor has taken a hold of the starting reins. Taylor also struggled last week against North Carolina, only completing 11 passes for 125 yards while throwing two interceptions in the win.
Once again, the vaunted Hokie defense had to bail out the offense and did so by holding UNC to just 14 first downs while forcing four turnovers in the win. Before backing the Hokies in this spot, college football betting fans need to know that VTECH is 1-7-1 ATS in non-conference games since 2006 per the closing NCAA football odds.
The Huskers have started the season strong and will look to keep it going against the Hokies. Since taking over for Sam Keller with a few games to go last year, QB Joe Ganz has dazzled when given the opportunity as the Huskers quarterback.
In Big Reds last game against New Mexico State, Ganz threw for 227 total yards and two touchdowns in a very efficient performance. RB Marlon Lucky has again been a workhorse on the ground, carrying the ball 15 times for 103 yards and two touchdowns in that win over the Aggies.
With one more ATS win this season, the Huskers will have already matched their college football gambling win total from 2007 after going 3-9 ATS against the closing NCAA lines last year. NCAA odds currently show the Cornhuskers as seven-point favorites in this game with a ‘total’ of 45.5.
