We’re a little more than halfway through the regular season, and the Hokies
will play at least six more football games, hopefully seven. There are plenty of
storylines to follow, and today we’ll talk about some of the most important.

Boykin Nearing the Record

Ernest Wilford caught 126 passes during his Virginia Tech career. Following
Saturday’s win over Wake Forest, Jarrett Boykin is already up to 99 career
receptions. 29 of them have come in seven games this year. The Hokies will play
either six or seven more games this year, so there is a chance that Boykin will
break the record late in his junior year. If not, he’ll do it early in his
senior season and have the rest of the year to pad his stats.

Boykin has progressed steadily throughout his career, and he’s playing his
best football right now.
