Going for the Hat Trick

This weekend I'll be taking in a triumvirate of excellent football games that will have big implications on their respective conference races.

On Thursday, I'll head down to beautiful Blacksburg, VA to watch the #3 Virginia Tech Hokies take on the #14 Boston College Eagles. Should VT win, they should only need to beat Miami the following week to secure a spot in the ACC Championship game Dec. 3. Should BC somehow emerge with a win, they could be in position to earn their own trip to Jacksonville.

On Friday, I'll attend the first high school football game I've attended in quite a while when I check out the Cave Spring Knights and the Salem Spartans from Salem, Va. The Knights and Spartans are both unbeaten and tied atop the AA River Ridge District. The winner will likely secure a postseason bid and would probably host a game or two.

On Saturday, I'll be in the stands to watch the OTHER BC Eagles, Bridgewater College, take on Washington and Lee in Lexington, Va. Bridgewater is unbeaten in the ODAC conference, so a win would put them in good shape for their 6th consecutive postseason appearance. W&L, however, has been a surprise in the ODAC this year with only one conference loss. A win would put the Generals in first place and could leave Bridgewater searching for an at-large bid to the playoffs.

In all, it will be an exciting weekend of football. This, my friends, is what October is all about.

Here's my picks:

Hokies
Spartans
Bridgewater

The Cave Spring/Salem game should be good. Cave Spring is still somewhat of a mystery, as their schedule has not been too tough so far, so I'll be interested to see if they can hang with the defending state champs. Enjoy!
