Here's a quick evening update less than 24 hours before kickoff in Blacksburg:
• The Orange and White's Greg Wallace says Saturday's showdown with the Hokies is a season-defining game: "Think about it: if the Tigers can take down unbeaten, No.11 Virginia
Tech in their own house, is there a game they won’t be favored in the
rest of the way, save a potential regular season-ending showdown at
South Carolina?" In a separate piece, Wallace breaks down the game's key points.
• Game prediction from Tigernet's David Hood? Clemson 27, Virginia Tech 23.
