Jackets pull off the upset in Charlottesville

I'll go out on a limb this weekend and figure that the Jackets actually feel the negativity of being called underdogs vs. Virginia and they go out fighting like they have the majority of the year. My guess:

Tech 28, UVA 24

-PJ excels again with another 100 yard+ game, setting the tone and taking pressure off Ball.

-Ball plays flawless but boring QB--which couldn't be more exciting to me. 150 yards, 50% completion, no or maybe 1 interception.

-The defense breathes fire and kills Schaub gently like they did Rivers...blitz to allow the underneath pass, then tackle, tackle, tackle and dare them to throw long. Schaub gets his numbers, just like Rivers did, but walks away a loser.

Go Jackets!
