Week 8 Power Rankings: Virginia Tech

The Hokies moved up four spots to No. 11 this week after defeating North Carolina 59-7 on Saturday.

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

From one former Virginia Tech quarterback to another: Buffalo's Tyrod Taylor threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to tight end Logan Thomas in the third quarter of Sunday's game against Tampa. It was Thomas' second career catch and first touchdown. He converted to tight end in Detroit last season before signing with the Bills.

Hokies big FPI favorites against UNC

Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente has 15 wins in his first two seasons, the most since B.C. Cubbage in the 1921-22 season. North Carolina has to win out to gain bowl eligibility, with FPI giving the Tar Heels a 0.1 percent chance of doing so starting Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2/ESPN App).

X factor for Virginia Tech down the stretch: Travon McMillian

For the Hokies to contend in the ACC Coastal Division, they'll need consistency from their running backs. McMillian had a season-high 17 carries against Boston College and could be in line for even more down the stretch.

Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente on the Coastal Division: "I don't think there's a nickel's worth of difference right now. It's going to be a tough, hard grind for anyone to make it all the way through. It's going to be hard and could go about 1,000 different ways."

Justin Fuente said WR Cam Phillips could practice today. "We'll see how he feels and see how it goes." Phillips left last week's game with a leg injury.
