2023 Military Bowl Preview



Virginia Tech and Tulane will meet in the 14 edition of the Military Bowl. Virginia Tech is favored by 7.5 points. This is going to be an interesting match-up. Brent Pry in his second year has turned the Hokies back into the bowl-eligible team. While Slade Nagle has been named interim coach, for the departed Willie Fretz who took the head coach job at Houston. The weather could play a factor in tomorrow where there is almost a 100% chance of rain and cold in the 40s.

What's at stake?


For the Hokies, it's another step in the right direction to get things back to where they once were for Virginia Tech. Honestly, since QB Michael Pratt, has decided to skip the bowl game and WR Chris Brazzell has decided to hit the transfer portal, I'm starting to like the Hokies' chances in this one. However, the Hokies will still have to play a great game.


Key Players: Virginia Tech

QB Kyron Drones needs to play a solid game for the Hokies to win

OL: Got to have a good game keep down the penalties and open some holes in the run game



Key Players: Tulane

QB will be very important in who the staff chooses to start

DL has to get pressure on Drones and bottle up the run game for Virginia Tech


Prediction - Military Bowl


Honestly, Virginia Tech should have no problem winning this game. The ESPN predictor gives Tech a 54% chance of winning before opting out from Michael Pratt, So Virginia Tech can't afford to have a slow start because we are unsure what Tulane has to offer on offense. With all that being said, I still think the Hokies pick up a nice win to end the season.
