Virginia Tech vS. East Carolina, live stream. Breaking down the Virginia Tech-East Carolina matchup, Family Weekend: Virginia Tech vs East Carolina.
It’s the same key matchup as last week, but not much has changed on this front. The Hokies need to run the ball better. And the Pirates, who have been gouged for an astonishing 310.5 yards per game, need to put up some — any — kind of resistance. Tech didn’t show a whole lot against Delaware, but what it did show wasn’t exactly overwhelming on the ground. Saturday marks the fifth time in the last five years that East Carolina University will face Virginia Tech, and is the third time in the past five years the Hokies come to town during family weekend.
In 2014, VT was ranked No. 14 nationally and was broadcasted live on the national stage. The game was hosted in Blacksburg, Virginia where former head coach Ruffin McNeill and his team took it to the Hokies. The Pirates upset Virginia Tech 28-21, evening the series 1-1. In the game, ECU hopped out to a 21-point lead in the first quarter, and lasted long enough to withstand the Hokies late comeback attempt.
This review is going to be a bit different. Why, you ask? Well, it’s different because the history between the teams is exactly one; you saw that correctly, ONE game long. The Hokies are 1 and 0 vs the East Carolina Pirates. That’s the way we need to look at it, and that’s the way I am going to go at this preview. All old stuff is just old stuff.
