West Virginia was getting set to graduate Skyler Howard after a breakout season and the Mountaineers would have to replace him with someone just as effective to even approach 10 wins again.
Virginia Tech is a four-point favorite in the neutral-site game (Landover, Md.), but let's go with the Mountaineers in the upset. Virginia Tech returns one of the ACC's top defenses this season.
Dana Holgorsen made one of the biggest moves last offseason when he landed Florida-transfer quarterback Will Grier. In his first game in a Mountaineer uniform Grier will show signs of taking the offense to the next level. Grier is West Virginia's leader in the offensive huddle, so in order for the Mountaineers to retain the Black Diamond Trophy, he's going to have to shake any rust he may have early.
KC: Make it three for three here with Grier being the pick. He'll grind it out and find a way to take the game into the fourth quarter.

Based on history alone, it's nearly a forgone conclusion that this renewal of the Black Diamond Trophy Game will be a close and down to the wire game.
Virginia Tech will be led by redshirt freshman Josh Jackson, who is the first freshman Hokie signal caller to start the season in 10 years.
That last game, played in Morgantown in 2005, resulted in a 34-17 Virginia Tech victory - West Virginia's lone blemish on the way to an 11-1 season and a Sugar Bowl victory over SEC champion Georgia.

Brenda Brouillette of the American Red Cross of MA said, "We still have fires every day here in western MA and across the state". We were working mainly in the camps that had sprung up all over the city. "The length of recovery is just mind boggling".
The storm has shut about one-quarter of USA fuel production, sending gasoline futures surging to a two-year high on Wednesday. For now, south western Louisiana is taking the hardest hit, with a levee being breached in the town of Gueydan.
