Virginia Tech should have a lot better attitude than Rutgers heading into this game. After all, it is happy to be playing in a bowl. The Hokies had to beat Boston College and Virginia in their final two regular-season contests just to become bowl eligible.
While the Hokies have to be excited about the opportunity to play postseason football, Rutgers might not share the same excitement considering it blew a golden opportunity to play in a BCS bowl game.
The Scarlet Knights won a share of the Big East Championship but didn’t receive the league’s automatic BCS bid.
