What do these 7 teams have in common: Temple, UCF, Army, Wyoming, UCLA, Virginia, and Florida International? Those would be theĀ 7 of the 119 NCAA FBS teams with a lower ranked offense than Virginia Tech. Ouch.

It's a real time world where stats are at your fingertips. So all you have to do is click over to the NCAA.org website to see where VT's offense stands after its 268 yard outing against UNC on Saturday. Currently the Hokie offense if 112 out of 119. Not good.

Look at the numbers further (this site has great info) and you'll see that VT is 45th in rushing offense, 114th in passing offense, and 86th in scoring offense. Passing efficiency is 112th. Sacks allowed is 85th. Not a lot of good numbers.

The defensive stats are all there too, and frankly right now they are mediocre, except for one: turnover margin where the Hokies are 10th (thus why we are 3-1).

Between VT and UVa, there's not a lot of in-state offensive production so far this year (take the under in that game).
