Today marks the end of the 2017 football season for the Hokies and they will not be playing until February 11.

The Hokies will also be without their top two receivers and one defensive back for the season.

The team will look to bounce back in 2018 and 2019 and look to take a step forward in 2019.

The Hokies have an offense that was one of the best in the ACC and was able to run the ball.

Hokies head coach Dave Doeren had a pretty solid recruiting class for 2017 and will look for to repeat that this year.

The offense will feature a lot of different weapons in the passing game including running backs Melvin Gordon and Jaelen Strong, tight ends Kyle Fuller and Ryan Williams, wide receivers James Wright and Trey Williams, and running backs Devon Cajuste and Joe Buntin.

The defense is anchored by defensive end Malik McDowell, who led the ACC in sacks last season.

Virginia Tech has to hope they can continue their success from a year ago.

They will have a lot to prove next season.
