There's rover-back Reggie Floyd, the ACC Player of the Week at defensive back after his eight tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, one interception and one pass breakup Saturday versus the Blue Devils.
There's wide receiver Damon Hazelton who has produced back-to-back 100-yard receiving efforts.
There's senior running back Steven People who has run for five touchdowns over the last three games combined, as the Hokies have averaged 234.7 yards on the ground in that span.
There's the stingy Virginia Tech offense that leads the country this week in fewest turnovers (five teams have two so far in 2018).
There's the Hokie rush defense, ranked fourth nationally this week while allowing 84 yards per game.
