The spread for this game is West Virginia by 3 points.

Virginia Tech aims to complete a perfect three-game homestand on Thursday night when they host West Virginia in a primetime showdown at Blacksburg, Va. The Hokies (2-1) answered a 20-17 road loss to Old Dominion on Sept. 2 with convincing victories over Boston College and Wofford.

A transfer from Marshall, quarterback Grant Wells rebounded from a four-interception performance against Old Dominion by tossing three touchdowns without a pick over his last two games.

Jalen Holston rushed for a touchdown in his second straight game for Virginia Tech. He also reeled in a 29-yard touchdown reception in the Hokies’ 27-21 setback to the Mountaineers last season at Morgantown, W.Va.

West Virginia (1-2) ignited its offense by scoring on all 10 of its possessions (nine touchdowns, one field goal) in a 65-7 romp over FCS foe Towson on Saturday.

Freshman CJ Donaldson found the end zone on three occasions during the first half, including an 82-yard scamper down the sideline. He has rushed for 274 yards and six touchdowns in three games this season.

Fellow running back Tony Mathis Jr. scored two first-half touchdowns on Saturday before finishing with 104 yards on 17 carries. The Mountaineers got up early and did not take their foot off the gas despite resting starters and going deep into the bench.
