Clemson had VT's number.  VT still has a good team but they don't belong in a BCS bowl.  Playoff is definitely needed.  But since there isn't one might as well get a good matchup for the dollar bills. 

I have to admit though I like watching Boise St. in bowl games.  Fun to watch. 

As for who wins this one.  I think VT will struggle with that Michigan QB.  They have problems against those type of QB's.  Just see how Boyd from Clemson took them apart. 

I will go with Michigan.  I think they roll here.

VT has no real good wins all year and they sucked heavy in the Orange bowl last year.  Brady coached up SDSU nice in last year's bowl game. Like UM

My early lean is that a depleted Bud Lite could stop a one-headed Michigan rushing monster. i.e. stop Fritz' or D.Rod' by themselves, take your pick

Stopping both will be a problem.
I am however most curious to see how D.Rod' passes as he is (still) not a pure Pro set or I Qb. Though he was much better in the final 3-game with more spread or ad-lib kinda looks.

Ergo, this one has in-game written all over it, after I observe 2-4 series of D.Rod and see how he goes (or does not).

Michigan is for real.  Hoke has his team playing well.  If DR plays like he did against my Huskers, Big Blue will roll here...Tech has NO quality wins all year...they beat UVA and that is about it.  I love Michigan here

Fading both of these teams in this one, id rather play casino war then bet on either of these teams in a big game.

Robinson is good for a couple of crucial turnovers...Yeah, he might make some plays, but he'll make more bad plays than good plays.

VT defense ain't shabby either and they have plenty of time to put a game plan in place to stop Michigan's offense.

Hokies 13th ranked defense should be able to slow down Robinson enough to keep it close.

Maybe a "Beamer Ball" special teams play or two gives them the edge.

VaTech +3.  And Under 51. 

VaTech 27 - Mich 20
