The final week of the college football season - before the bowls begin - takes place this weekend. Several teams will vie for a conference title, while other programs are playing rescheduled games from earlier in the season.

Among those playing rescheduled games is Virginia Tech. The Hokies were slated to play East Carolina earlier this season, but Hurricane Florence derailed a large portion of the schedule near the Carolinas.

Instead of rescheduling the game against ECU, Virginia Tech will now play Marshall on Saturday afternoon.

One Vegas computer suggests that's a mistake for the Hokies. OddsShark released its score predictions for the weekend and the computer likes Marshall to upset Virginia Tech this weekend.

Virginia Tech score prediction.

Virginia Tech enters the game as a 3.5-point favorite, but is expected to lose by at least eight points - per this prediction.

Marshall and Virginia Tech kick off on Saturday at 12:00 p.m. ET. Can the Thundering Herd pull off the upset?
