Virginia Tech Vs. Georgia Tech: Hokies Look To Boast Elite Defense

Georgia Tech opens up the 2012 season with quite the challenge, as the Yellow Jackets head to Virginia Tech to take on the No. 16 Hokies.

The Hokies look to boast not just one of the best defenses in the country, but one of the best defenses ever.

The folks over at From the Rumble Seat found this interesting quote from Virginia Tech's defensive coordinator, Bud Foster.

On the opening night of training camp, however, Foster laid out the sort of season-long goals only elite defenses can aspire to. One, in particular, stuck out to his players: 13 touchdowns.


That's how many the 2006 team gave up, one less than what defending BCS national champion Alabama allowed last season.

Needless to say, those are quite lofty goals for the Hokies. If Virginia Tech's defense is that good, it'll be a long day for Georgia Tech's offense, as the Yellow Jackets look to open the 2012 season with a win.
