After a dominant win in their contest two weeks ago, the Paladins were humbled last week. They were within striking distance but couldn't close the gap, as they fell 42-48 to Georgia State.

As for the Hokies, they stumbled on the road two weeks ago against Boston College, but they seem to have regained their footing back home. The Hokies came out on top against Old Dominion by a score of 31-17. Old Dominion can consider this payback for the 35-49 loss they dealt the Hokies the last time the teams encountered one another.

Furman took a serious blow against the Hokies when the teams last met four seasons ago, falling 3-42. Can Furman avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
