Entering his 26th year as head coach of the Virginia Tech Hokies, Frank Beamer will look to improve on an 11-3 record from 2011 and continue to have the third-longest bowl game streak in the country. Last season, Coach Beamer led his team to the Sugar Bowl where they suffered a disappointing defeated by Michigan in overtime. Now, Coach Beamer will look to quarterback Logan Thomas to once again deliver big numbers from his team after throwing for over 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns in 2011. With 4 new starters on the offensive line and new set of wide receivers at his disposal, Thomas may have to be even better this season. With a team philosophy dubbed “Beamerball” for its non-offensive scoring abilities, the Virginia Tech Hokies will certainly be one of the most exciting teams to watch in the 2012 football season.

The Virginia Tech Hokies football program is based in Blacksburg, Virginia at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. The Hokies play football at the NCAA Division I level and are members of the Atlantic Coast Conference. Since 1993, the Hokies have participated in the postseason every year giving them the third-longest streak in the country. Current head coach Frank Beamer is the winningest active coach in Division I football and known for developing “Beamerball,” a football philosophy where the offensive, defensive, and special teams players all give an effort to put points on the scoreboard. Lane Stadium, also dubbed the “Terrordome” in 1999, is home to the Hokies and one of the most feared home field advantages in the country. With former-rival West Virginia switching to the Big 12 Conference, the in-state rivalry between Virginia Tech and Virginia will undoubtedly heat up during the 2012 season.
