BLACKSBURG, Va. — Virginia Tech has played shorthanded all season.
Coach Justin Fuente and the No. 23 Hokies have seeming battled two opponents each time they have taken the field: the other team and COVID-19.
Fuente's Hokies have been without an average of nearly 20 players per week so far, and a depleted secondary could be an issue against pass-happy Boston College.
Eagles quarterback Phil Jurkovec averages better than 295 passing yards and has thrown for eight touchdowns for the surprising Eagles, who are 3-1 under first-year coach Jeff Hafley.
