Here’s a look at how Virginia Tech, and their opponents, did when reaching a certain points scored range. Note that the points scored includes overtime (so final total).
|Point Range||VT’s Record||Opp Record vs VT|
No real surprises here — when you can score the ball, you increase your chances of winning. In fact, VT was 100% when scoring 70-plus, something they only did once in 2012 and that was with the benefit of an overtime. And when you can’t score, you lose — Tech was 2-11 in games where they were held under 60 points (amazingly their opponents were 4-6 (that’s a higher percentage of wins than you’d expect), meaning the Hokies were losing close, low scoring games).
*The only game where an opponent scored more than 70 and lost was the georgia tech at VT game, and that went to overtime where neither team had 70 in regulation.
