College Football is Here! Another season kicks off tonight and with it a new feature here at The Gaming Tailgate begins. Each week of the season, we will use NCAA Football 11 to preview & sim the top Game of the Week. The biggest game on the schedule to kick off the season is Boise State vs. Virginia Tech in a game to be played at FedEx Field in Washington, DC on Monday night.
The Broncos enter the game with a 14-game win streak and have prevailed in 26 of their last 27 games. A win versus the Hokies in what is sure to be a hostile environment and virtual home game for VT would put Boise State in position to contend for the National Championship. A loss all but ends those hopes.
The Hokies enter the 2010 season on a five-game win streak after three losses in 2009 by a combined 18 points. Despite being a top ten team, they are not on many expert's short lists to contend for the National Championship and a win here would change that quickly. To say this is a huge game for both teams would be an understatement.
The two teams will be wearing newly unveiled Nike Pro Combat uniforms
