Today we’re going to look at some statistical trends on the offensive side of the ball through the first four games, and we’ll also take a quick look at special teams. 

Hokies Better at Big Plays So Far in 2018

Perhaps the biggest theme of the offseason was whether or not the Hokie offense could generate more big plays than they did a year ago.  So far through four games, the answer is yes.

30+ yards: 21 (No. 93)
40+ yards: 7 (No. 120)
50+ yards: 2 (No. 121)
60+ yards: 1 (No. 113)
70+ yards: 1 (Next-to-last)
