If anyone else has DirecTV and is in one of the CW areas, we're gonna need backup plans

Streams on the ACC app, streams on the link above.

Also on ACC Network Extra where not televised (subject to blackout)

Forgive me for being skeptical, but streams are often blacked out when there's a local channel you're supposed to be getting the game on

On the ESPN app, that's true. But it's always available on the ACC app.

Then why put the disclaimer about blackouts on the site?

Game has 2 streaming options. ESPN blacks it out. (ACC Network Extra is part of WatchESPN)

ACC has an independent app that doesn't black out.

Cool, thanks. I've only ever had to stream for a game while I'm at weddings. Dont really know how all that stuff works if it's not on WatchESPN

ACC has an independent app that doesn't black out.

So can I stream on ACC.com or something? Watching on windows PC since it's the biggest screen I'll have access to.

EDIT: I have access to an Apple TV, and the ACCSports Official App isn't broadcasting live. Is this the app, or is there another? I actually checked the thread before posting this time, so if I overlooked it again, then I'm really an idiot.

Thanks for the link! It says "no internet connection available" on the screen yet the video is playing. This acc site is complete garbage. Why doesn't the player autoresize when not in full screen mode?

Let's pack Lane and not complain about the rain!

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

It's crazy how competitive this matchup has been recently. 5 of the last 6 matchups have been within 4 points. The one blowout was VT's 41-20 win in 2012, but Duke jumped out to a 20-0 lead in that game. Since 2013, the cumulative score has been Duke 95, VT 94.

I ask bc the line keeps moving. Went from 16.5 down to 15 on Thursday, and now it's back up to 17...

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Very impressive defensive drive followed by a really well executed offensive drive. This could be a blowout if we keep it up. Think UNC. Let's do the dirty to all of NC

28 played a great angle to save that from being a huge return

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

Not sure if its windy or not, but that was a very short kickoff by Slye's standards.

Sly not putting it in the endzone? Is he hurt?

Maybe the cold slightly wet ball. Or maybe he's focused on relaxing and focusing on practicing accuracy for kickoffs so he stops missing FGs

D is turning into an old school Bud Foster VT defense.

The defense is struggling tonight. Last week those turnovers are TDs. Really need them to pick it up. /s

I'll take it. OK offense and great defense. However, looks like we're going to get more point soon.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

So after all the talk of Miami playing a vanilla game plan (albeit poorly performed if so) do you think we are going with a vanilla game plan tonight as well?

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Looks to me like we are doing what we've been doing all season. Not sure if that's vanilla or not. Also, I am not buying that Miami was vanilla - they just didn't dominate UNC like we did.

I'm good with vanilla game-plan ONCE WE ATTAIN a modestly, comfortable lead (i.e. twenty-something or 31-7). Anything less than 20 pts is too risky (IMOP).

Horrible. Very bad decision by Motu.

Edit: Probably doesn't matter since our Defense is awesome.

Based on what I could see, it wasn't a bad hit at all.

I didn't think it was worth a flag either. He took 1 step and hit from the replay shown.

Tired of some of these third down play calls...

If we were going to go for it on 4th down, not sure why we did that play on 3rd down.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

Offense struggling early again.

One thing is clear, Josh Jackson cannot carry this team running the football.

Is it football season yet?

Exactly. So let's run him up the middle on third and 5...

That run was a result of the pressure.

Uh, no. Designed QB run.

Lol, I must be on a huge delay. Refreshed the page and saw 99Hokies03's post saying "BOOM," then watched the TD. WatchESPN app + chromecast. I need to time my refreshes more carefully, haha.

Anyone else notice the skipper cadet being extra stoic? I guess last week garnered some extra punishment PT

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Either that or the ACC Network asked for those kind of shots. Up until last week I don't recall Skipper getting that much attention after every score.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

I noticed and wondered the same thing, haha.

He nailed that interview with Fuente until that closing statement lol

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

What the hell did that sideline reporter say at the half, just after interviewing Coach?

Sitting here watching the game (ahh, dry this time) and saw this Fuente interview and the remarks that followed. After transcribing the remarks, I came here to see if anyone else noticed it. Of course you did.

Anyway, for posterity: After interviewing Fuente (end of the first half), here is the reporter's wrapup:

"Big first half here for Du... for Duke... unless...
Virginia Tech has to do a better job.

Duke is doing well in the second half... can you do it?

Back to the studio."

Disagree. Where Duke ends up getting the ball is the same as a touchback. With the way the D is playing that is a worthwhile gamble all day.

Not being willing to take a field goal is gonnna come back to bite us in the ass at some point this year if we keep doing this.

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

It's definitely weather related.

Not really. We saw what happened to UNC last year, when Fedora didn't adjust for the rain. Feels like CornFu is playing it smart.

Not converting on 4th downs in general against lesser opponents. Conversions on 4th downs are already gonna be a low stat for any team. Just because something works in practice, doesn't mean it's gonna work in the real game. Plus, add in the rain factor.

Not trying FG's that have zero chance in this mess when a punt it likely to go into the EZ and make a 5-10 yd diff doesn't make sense regardless of who we're playing.

That looked Logan-esque. Minus the height, of course.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

Jackson channeling Logan Trucking!

Fourth times a charm.... FOR THE TD!!

I commend all the loyal fans sticking it out in the weather. I know I would be pretty tempted to leave if I was there.

Sat through the Hurricane Isabell game against A&M. Well worth the two week bout vs. bronchitis!

Where's the beef?

That would've been an INT for Facyson were it not out of bounds.

that would have been nice

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

Facyon back in, so that's a good sign.

FUCK we nearly had it!

Here come the "Bud can't stop a running QB" comments. Just need to adjust to the draw.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Not necessarily.

I don't think that's a "Bud" thing. On both runs, Edmunds looked to be too far inside to have contain.

Raise your hand if you watch games now thinking 'that will be cool for Giftory.'

Hand Raised!

The slide?

Where's the beef?

I'm admittedly raising hand, but are you talking about a specific play in this game or in general?

Prob is that Giftory would be 50+ GIF's long.

Sorry, not this time Jones.

Way to bail us out Duke!

Where's the beef?

Wow, can't believe they didn't get the snap off without a penalty there.

?? Are you referencing them possibly attempting a FG??

No. We left a wideout completely uncovered.

Oh, ok. Didn't catch that one. Good call.

Dammit, ALMOST another one! This time, Stro. That ball is too slippery (go ahead).

The drop was better for field position on 4th down.

Getting the INT on that pass would have been a net loss since it was 4th down.

I know. I just like it for the players and our DBU stats. Makes it look sexier.

This is the first time I've seen standing water on our field in a long time.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

I was just going to say...I've never seen standing water on the field since I first started paying attention to the Hokies in 2003. I thought the field could drain water a some ridiculously fast rate. No?

Are the vacuums not on?

I thought eshiben5 said there was only going to be 1/4" of rain. #Weatherforecastfail

He meant 1/4'/hr

From someone who was there, there was more than 1/4"/hr.

1/4'/hr = 1/4 foot per hour.
1/4"/hr = 1/4 inch per hour.
1/4'/hr >>>> 1/4'"/hr

so yeah

That Duke kid must have about a 90" vertical to call that catchable.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

And what game would be complete without a BS call from the ever efficient ACC crew on our secondary. What a shitface.

Best players on Duke's offense are wearing stripes.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Whomever is making these BS calls NEEDS to get donkey punched in the balls. Seriously. There's 10 mins left. Making these calls is NOT gonna help Duke close the gap in pts.

Leg for donkey punch. I don't even know what that is, but here's a leg.

Wow, two craptacular PI calls. The one on Mook was more offensive PI than defensive PI.

What, no call on Gaines for sacking Jones?? /s.

Stop on 4th down!

Smart play by JJ to stay in bounds there.

Watching that last run hy Jackson just makes me want this game to be over. Dont need anyone catching a cleat and tearing an ACL.

Where's the beef?

Agreed.

Dude, we won the Virginia Tech Cup in Lane Stadium last season. Educate yourself!

What a freaking playcall. Play action fake to Keane!

Lol padding those stats a little before the clock hits 0.

Using /s is for cowards.

Actually its playing to not give the ball back to Duke.

Yea I understand...

The result still padded his stats a little.

Using /s is for cowards.

I love the play call in a more meaningful situation, but can anyone help me understand why we would show Miami / GT that play in a game that's already over? Not criticizing the coaches just trying to understand

Fuente probably has another play that looks like that and will result in a TD when Miami over reacts expecting this play.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

At this point in the season, get it on tape and give them something else to worry about.

We put the K in Kwality

Good win boys. Moving on to Miami.

ITS MOTHER FUCKING MIAMI HATE WEEK

Now do I watch more college football or tune in to thr Caps vs. Oilers game and watch the Oil shred the Caps sorry ass defense? Need more beer!

Where's the beef?

A certain SWELL of satisfaction pummeling the shit out of Duke by a WIDE score berth. Sorry Cutcliffe, your a decent dude, but we had to shut ya down. OH SHIT! I HOPE we're catching all this PRICELESS footage of the postgame slip'n slides!!!

Great win. Hope folks appreciate it. Defense was on point. Offense is what it is, but they did exactly what they needed to do to put up a W.

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

The skipper guy from last week traded his uniform for a costume!

No dancing this week. Only a held salute. Hope they didn't get in too much trouble.

Nice comment at the about about Fuente saying we are good enough to win every game we have left but we are also bad enough to lose them all as well. You gotta know who you are.

Glad to hear that from him and I'm sure that mentality goes into the team. Take nothing for granted. Great win in sloppy conditions.

Get ready for overhyped Miami. Hope they read their own headlines.

That was so awful in person, idk how we scored in the second half

What was with the field? I thought we had systems in place to keep it dry and not have puddles on it? Has it broken down?
