Asmussen's Top 50: No. 48 Virginia Tech

Asmussen's Top 50: No. 48 Virginia Tech

Bob Asmussen counts down his top 50 college football teams this upcoming season.

No. 48: Virginia Tech

Coach: Frank Beamer

2013 record: 8-5

Projected 2014 record: 8-4

Circle the date: Sept. 6 at Ohio State

Why No. 48: Last year didn’t look a bit like Beamer Ball. But the proud coach will get his team quickly back on track. The end of the inconsistent Logan Thomas era at quarterback should be a boost for the offense. The running game will be improved with a healthy Trey Edmunds. And Bud Foster is a genius on defense as the Hokies/Gobblers look to re-establish themselves as an ACC force.
