It was a down season for the Virginia Tech Hokies, who were led by legendary head coach Frank Beamer in his 28th season as head coach. After starting 2-0, including a 14-point win on the road at Ohio State—the eventual National Champions—the Hokies went 5-6 the rest of the way, a stretch that also consisted of disappointing losses to Wake Forest and Boston College.
But the season ended with a two-game winning streak against Virginia and Cincinnati in the Military Bowl, and after Ohio State went on to win the first-ever College Football Playoff, the story shifted to last season being a building block for better things to come.
Michael Brewer returns under center after throwing for 2,692 yards with 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. His skill players are returning too, as all signs point towards resurgence for the Hokies. Wide receivers Isaiah Ford, Cam Phillips and Charley Meyer are all back, including running back Marshawn Williams who led the team in carries.
Virginia Tech has a tough slate of games ahead in 2015, particularly games against Ohio State at Lane Stadium, Purdue on the road and East Carolina on the road, aside from their ACC schedule.

When last season ended with Ohio State lifting up the National Championship trophy, the Hokies were able to realize how quality of a win they had in the beginning of the 2014 campaign. Virginia Tech went into Ohio Stadium and beat the Buckeyes by 14 points, and this season they get a chance to do it in front of their home fans in Blacksburg. Ohio State will be the No. 1-ranked team when the rankings are released, so the Hokies will go against the best team in the country in the opening week of the season.

This longstanding ACC rivalry did not go in favor of Virginia Tech last season, as the Hokies were dominated from start-to-finish, losing 30-6.
