Straight Up: How Many Receiving Yards Will Pitt's Tyler Boyd Have Against the Hokies?

You can win a ticket to Virginia Tech–NC State.

Do you need a ticket to next week's Virginia Tech–North Carolina State game? If so, all you need to do is correctly predict how many receiving yards Tyler Boyd will have on Saturday against the Hokies. Boyd is averaging 113 yards per game. Leave your guess (educated or otherwise) and any justification you may have in the comments (to make things more interesting). Congratulations to last week's straight up winner Hokie_x3_Hi, who nailed ECU's 228 passing yards against Tech on the head.

Don't forget to follow TKP on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube. Each week throughout the season TKP will give away tickets to Virginia Tech's remaining home games as well as swag from our online store.

The rules are:

  • Must be over 18;
  • Price is Right rule is in effect, you need to be closest to the Boyd's receiving yards without going over;
  • Picks are first come, first serve. In other words, there'll be 0 or 1 winners. If you duplicate someone else's existing pick, you lose.
  • One entry per person;
  • Do not, for any reason, edit your comment/picks. The database stores both a comment created date and last edit date. If those two aren't equal, you're disqualified;
  • Picks must be in before 11:00 AM EST on 10/3/15;
  • Statistics will be sourced from HokieSports.com;
  • Much like with Powerball, you must claim your prize. If you are the winner, email joe thekeyplay [dot] com, and the claim will be verified. Claims submitted after 11:59 PM EST on 10/4/15 won't be considered.

Some people spend their entire life wondering if they made a difference, Marines don't have that problem

I think the better question is will Corey Marshall get an INT again?

112 is my guess.

132 receiving yards... I hope I'm shooting high but I'm done thinking the rain and our defense will matter. This is hope we stop their run game and make them pass.

42 yards. With James Conner, I'd triple that, but he'll be the sole focus of our defense. Also hurricane.

Dammit. Second place is first loser.

I was 2nd loser if it makes you feel better.

No idea. A lot going against big receiving numbers. New QB, weather, sole focus of offense, vt D lots to prove. He is averaging 110 a game I will go with that.

I kind of like the way you think. But no long lasting injury.

I hope Carson is in the game enough to lay the wood on him.

78 yards.

I'm guessing he'll finish around 68 yards on 3 catches. The weather will likely force Pitt to focus on running more than passing, but they can't abandon the passing game altogether. Given our recent tackling woes, I do suspect his ypc will be pretty good though.

"Some people think football is a matter of life and death....... I assure you, it's MUCH more serious than that" ...Bill Shankly

Boyd will have 88 receiving yards. I think whatever DB is matched up with Tyler Boyd will not be without help over the top on almost every play. In other words I don't think Foster will let him beat them deep, though I could see alot of missed tackles in a very sloppy game and Boyd breaking one for a long gain. My guess is just that purely a guess.

153

Is it football season yet?

205

My wife made me stop dipping :(

I love the idea of this thread because it introduces something new and exciting to TKP. Free tickets? whaaa? That is really cool.

However, my feedback is that the competition itself sounds like something that the OTHER team should be posting. Why the heck are we taking guesses at how successful the other teams best player will be? What about how many yards will Motley throw for? How many total offensive yards will VT gain? Or punt return yards?

To put it differently, this type of competition comes off to me as anticipation of another players performance when the reality is, in this case, Tyler Boyd and the entire Pitt program can go fuck themselves with a rusty screwdriver.

Ideally: 0 yards....He gets laid out on the first play of the game drops the pass and refuses to go back in.

Realistically: 125 yards and 2 TDs....We wont be able to cover him and the weather wont be as windy as originally expected opening up the down field passing game.

178. Boyd is a monster and "DBU" has been a complete joke so far this year, and will only continue to be with Fuller out.
