One of the reasons Virginia Tech has been so successful during its time in the ACC has been its ability to win on the road. The Hokies' success in true road games is unparalleled. Since 2004, Virginia Tech is 22-5 on the road against ACC opponents.
Heading into Saturday's game at Duke, the Hokies have won 10 consecutive true road games, the longest active streak in the country, ahead of Oregon and Oklahoma State (9). A win Saturday would set a new school record for the longest road winning streak, topping the 10-game streak from 2004-06 and would set a new record for the longest streak in the ACC, topping Virginia Tech’s 10-game streak from 2004-06 and Florida State’s 10-game streak from 1998-2000.
The biggest road test of the season, though, is on Nov. 10 at Georgia Tech. If the Hokies can win that day in Atlanta, there's no reason to think they won't make a second-straight appearance in Charlotte. Can the road winning streak continue three more times this season, ending with a win at rival Virginia? The Hokies' history says the odds are pretty good.
