One of the nation's best college football team's isn't playing like it today. No. 13 Virginia Tech is struggling this afternoon against Old Dominion.

The undefeated Hokies are tied 14-14 with the winless Monarchs despite fielding a superior roster. Are the Hokies just sleepwalking through an inferior opponent or is there a real problem in Blacksburg?

It's most likely the former, but Virginia Tech has been dominated through the air by quarterback Blake LaRussa who has nearly 250 yards and two touchdowns at the half.

The Hokies have been solid in the run game with 172 yards rushing, but quarterback Josh Jackson has been shaky thus far.

Old Dominion doesn't have win on the year and have been outscored 108-55 through three games this season. However, the Monarchs are giving Virginia Tech all the team can handle through the first 30 minutes of the game.

Will the Hokies wake up in time to keep their perfect season alive?
