    The rhetoric is inevitable, because the results have been exactly that--for nearly a decade.  The Commonwealth Clash has gone the Hokies way for nine years running.  Fair to say that the Hokies cup has runneth over. Linebacker Jack Tyler says there is some added pressure because he certainly doesn't want to be part of the class that allows the streak to end, and the Cup to fall into the Cavaliers hands. Logan Thomas says that because some people feel UVA is a "prestigious" University that they tend to feel that they are better than Virginia Tech, but he says it should be clear by now what the truth is. 

    On paper at least, Virginia doesn't appear to have much of argument that they can deter the streak from reaching a full decade.  At 2-9 on the year the Wahoos season has been miserable. Leaving only the chance of a titanic upset to stop the streak as motivation.  Senior lineman Morgan Moses says that it is this team's last chance to show what they've got--this is Virginia's bowl game since they aren't bowl eligible. Senior Defensive Lineman Brent Urban says the game is a huge rivalry, and it is usually more physical than most because every player out there is going all out. The Hokies and Cavaliers kick from Charlottesville at 330 on Saturday. This is the 95th meeting between the schools dating back to 1895. Virginia Tech holds a 52-37-5 edge in the series, including 16 of the past 20 contests.
