The Hokies (2-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) will face North Carolina State (4-1, 0-1), and quarterback Michael Brewer is listed as probable after missing the last four weeks with a broken left collarbone.
The Virginia Tech Hokies (2-3, 0-1 ACC) kicked off the ACC portion of their schedule on Saturday with an ugly 17-13 loss to the Pittsburgh Panthers. The Hokies mustered only 100 yards of total offense, and quarterback Brenden Motley was sacked seven times.
The Wolfpack (4-1, 0-1 ACC) also kicked off ACC play last week with a 20-13 home loss to Louisville. The ‘Pack began the 2015 season with one of the weakest schedules in all of FCS. N.C. State defeated Troy, Eastern Kentucky, Old Dominion and South Alabama before losing to Louisville last weekend.
There is a sense of desperation in Blacksburg as the Virginia Tech Hokies prepare to face off against the North Carolina State Wolfpack on Friday night, and with good reason. The last time Tech held a sub-.500 record five games this late into the season was in the 1992-1993 season when the Hokies finished 2-8-1.
For the Hokies, quarterback Michael Brewer is listed as probable to play after being medically cleared to practice on Monday. Tech had high hopes for Brewer coming into season, but those hopes were put on hold after the redshirt senior broke his left collarbone against Ohio State in week one.
This is the 49th all-time meeting between the two schools and only the fourth since the Hokies entered the ACC back in 2004. Tech leads the all-time series 26-18-4 and is 3-1 against State as ACC foes.
The last meeting was in 2010, when the Tyrod Taylor-led Hokies defeated the Wolfpack and a guy named Russell Wilson.
