Jeff Allen is the latest injured Virginia Tech basketball player

When we last checked in with the Virginia Techmen’s basketball, the injury bug had struck again. Coming off a strong non-conference win over Mississippi State in the Bahamas, senior Dorenzo Hudson and sophomore Cadarian Raines were both put on the...

Virginia Tech's struggles vs. top five teams continue in Orange Bowl

Even if the Virginia Tech football team had managed to pull off an upset over No. 5 Stanford Monday night, its record facing top five opponents would have still been a point of contention. The Hokies were just 1-26 all-time...

Virginia Tech's secondary, Stanford's Luck face their biggest tests yet

There is so much to like about Monday night's Orange Bowl. Two star quarterbacks leading two balanced offenses. The old, reliable coach (Frank Beamer) against the new, hot commodity facing NFL rumors (Harbaugh). East coast vs. west coast. A football...
