At 6-6, Virginia Tech comes into the Russell Athletic Bowl with their worst record under Frank Beamer since their streak of 20 consecutive bowls started in 1993. Still, Beamer's boys from Blacksburg could just as easily be 8-4 right now, after close losses to Cincinnati and then-No. 10 Florida State. For that reason and more, Coach Beamer is confident his team's progress.
