Bud Foster’s defense took some heat for part of the season, particularly
following back-to-back October losses to Georgia Tech and North Carolina.
However, the defense played much better down the stretch, and now it’s time to
take a look at their season as a whole.

The Hokies finished the regular season 14th in total defense. That’s pretty
good, but it’s the first time since 2003 that Tech hasn’t finished in the Top 10
nationally in total defense. Here’s a look at how the Hokies have done
defensively since joining the ACC.
