Virginia Tech’s current six-game winning streak is very impressive. What’s even more impressive is how the Hokies are winning those games.

It was obvious Tech was getting better, but exactly how much better wasn’t clear.
The next three games gave us the answer. Though Tech only beat Pitt by four, they led that game by as many as 13 points in the second half. Then they came back in their next game and dominated #7 Miami for 40 minutes. They capped things off last night by leading a talented Florida State team from start to finish.

Pitt: Led by 13 late in the game
Miami: Hammered the #7 Canes by 15
Florida State: Led from start to finish. Won by 11, led by as many as 17
