Hokie Pride Week 2011

These two ladies are looking to have a real good time and are ready to show the world just what Hokie Nation is capable -- and willing -- to do.

Virginia and Virginia Tech square off in Charlottesville in just five short days, not just for the Commonwealth Cup, but also for the Coastal division title and a shot at the ACC Championship title against Clemson.  Each team is just two wins away from an Orange Bowl berth, but right now, everyone's just focused on this week.

The Hoos haven't won the Commonwealth Cup in seven years, with 2003 being the last time.  That was also the last time Virginia was favored going into the rivalry game -- by 2.5 points.  This week, Virginia Tech opened as a 4.5 point favorite, and the line has moved somewhere around the 5- to 6-point range, considerably more favorable than in the past few years.
