2019 Belk Bowl Preview
The Hokies went 8-4 in 2019, earning a trip to a 27th consecutive bowl game. A year ago, they fell to the Cincinnati Bearcats 35-31 in the Military Bowl.
Virginia Tech went to the Belk Bowl in 2016, naming the Arkansas Razorbacks 35-24.
“I’m proud of the way our team is fighting and competing to earn another bowl for Virginia Tech,” said Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente, according to the Belk Bowl official website. “We enjoyed an amazing experience on our trip to the Belk Bowl in 2016 and we can’t wait to return.”
In their regular-season finale, the Hokies fell to the Virginia Cavaliers 39-30 on a trip to the ACC title game on the line.
Virginia Tech led 27-20 heading into the fourth quarter. Down three in the final two minutes, Hokies quarterback Hendon Hooker took sacks in three straight plays, weakening the final takedown. The Cavaliers are back in the end zone for a game-icing score.
“We got into a situation there at the end of the game where everybody knew we were throwing the ball,” Fuente said, according to The Associated Press. “That’s not our strength.”
The Wildcats, at 7-5, now reach a bowl game in four consecutive seasons following a five-year drought. Last year, they outscored the Penn State Nittany Lions 27-24 in the Citrus Bowl.
“We are honored to be invited to the Belk Bowl to play a unique opponent at Virginia Tech,” Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops said, per the Belk Bowl site. “Our team has fought a lot of adversity this season and I’m very proud of our players for getting another title bid.”
The Wildcats closed out their regular season with three straight victories, leading the Louisville Cardinals 45-13 to their finale. Lynn Bowden Jr., who after four games moved from wide receiver at quarterback to injury on two signal callers, rushed 22 times for 284 yards and 4 touchdowns.
The Cardinals tallied a 56-yard touchdown run in the final seconds of the first half to take Kentucky’s lead to 17-13.
“We felt in control of the whole game outside of the last 20 seconds, 30 seconds of the first half,” Stoops said, per AP.
“To take the kind of a gut punch when you think you are completely dominant can blow off your sails, but that’s not it. Not a bit in this group.
“But we didn’t flinch. Lynn said, ‘don’t worry about it, I got you,’ and she did. What can you say about Lynn? She’s really remarkable in so many ways.”
