Old Dominion vS. Virginia Tech Live stream. ODU’s Williams set to make 1st start vs No. 13 Virginia Tech. NCAA College Football
Old Dominion coach Bobby Wilder, a former quarterback, made the switch to Williams a week ago late in the first half of his team’s game against North Carolina. The Monarchs (2-1) were losing 39-7 and lacking energy, Wilder said. The left-handed Williams was able to inject some flair, leading three scoring drives in a 53-23 loss.
Williams provided a spark almost immediately, converting a third-and-11 with the 19-yard run to the Tar Heels’ 5 on a draw play, then fumbled the ball away two plays later. He played the entire second half and because of the energy he gave to the offense, Wilder named him the starter going forward once the game was over.
With the odds stacked against his team, coach Bobby Wilder knows his team in for a challenge at Lane Stadium. This is clearly the best team we’ve ever played,” Wilder said. “I thought North Carolina was a good team, I think Virginia Tech is a better football team.Old Dominion leads the nation with 16 sacks per game, one better than the defending national champions Clemson.
