Jackson steps into spotlight for No. 21 Virginia Tech


Although past PED usage was a concern, fans welcomed Grier with open arms and expectations ran high prior to Sunday's opener against Virginia Tech. I would like to say a close game, with West Virginia winning. West Virginia must protect the football and the Mountaineer defense will need to create turnovers.

While it is his first start under the college football lights, don't expect Jackson to be overwhelmed.

The Mountaineer defense would make two more stops then the offense would drive down the field 86 yards, capped off by an 11 yard touchdown reception by wide receiver David Stills and West Virginia would take a 7-3 lead with 5:37 left in the first half. Grier is West Virginia's leader in the offensive huddle, so in order for the Mountaineers to retain the Black Diamond Trophy, he's going to have to shake any rust he may have early. "Virginia Tech is going to win by seven", Adkins said. Grier will pick up right where he left off at Florida and will guide West Virginia to victory with a solid performance Sunday night against a strong Virginia Tech defense. He'll grind it out and find a way to take the game into the fourth quarter.

West Virginia has 220 total yards on offense, while the Hokies have 165 yards. "And I think the result is going to come down to quarterback play". I expect that he will. He didn't see defensive end Trevon Hill, however, who dropped back into coverage at the last second and notched his first career interception to end the drive. The Hokies defense was No. 3 in third-down stops a year ago and 20th in 2015.

"I think the biggest key in the first couple of games is obviously just ball security and penalties", he said, listing the two concerns Fuente and his staff harp on as much as any. Based on history alone, it's nearly a forgone conclusion that this renewal of the Black Diamond Trophy Game will be a close and down to the wire game.
