Blacksburg - The last time Virginia Tech did not play in a post-season bowl, George H.W. Bush was President, a stamp cost 29 cents, a gallon of gas about $1.10 and the Hokies' freshman class wasn't even born yet.
Unless the 4-and-6 Hokies win their final two regular season games, their 19-year bowl streak will come to an end. This Saturday, Tech plays at 2-and-8 Boston College. The Hokies, though, have dropped two of their last three at BC's Alumni Stadium. Tech is 0-and-5 on the road this year, they've lost their last seven away from Lane Stadium.
