Pick 'em: Wake Forest at Virginia Tech

With last week's win over Central Michigan in the rearview mirror, Virginia Tech can now turn its attention fully on advancing to the ACC championship game. Beginning Saturday against Wake Forest, the Hokies now have six consecutive conference games to end the season.

Virginia Tech currently sits atop the ACC Coastal Division with a 2-0 record -- even though it has yet to face a Coastal Division foe -- and based on talent the Hokies should improve to 3-0 this weekend facing the Demon Deacons.

Wake Forest will start true freshman Tanner Price at quarterback and has a youthful defense that has been gashed in recent weeks. In addition, the Demon Deacons come into Lane Stadium for the first time since the ACC expanded in 2004 riding a four-game losing streak.

So I expect the Hokies to roll in this one and pick up their fifth straight victory -- although every time I write something like that, I think about the James Madison loss. If Virginia Tech needs extra motivation, maybe the fact that it might reenter the top 25 with a win will do the trick.

Remember, running back Ryan Williams could make his return to the lineup Saturday after missing three games with a right hamstring injury. Also, kickoff is set for 3:30 and the game will be broadcast on ESPNU.

My Prediction: Virginia Tech 45, Wake Forest 17

Wake is young this year. This is bascially a rebuilding year for Grobe. Tech looks like they've gotten past the opening losses and are ready to move on.

Tech 38, Wake 7
