The best College GameDay signs of Week 5

The best College GameDay signs of Week 5

ESPN's College GameDay rolled onto campus here at Virginia Tech Monday and picked this spot for their broadcasts.

A week after No. 1 Alabama (4-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) crushed what it perceived as an uppity undefeated Vanderbilt team, Ole Miss comes to town having scored 109 points against the Crimson Tide over the past three years - by far the most of any opponent.

"I just think it's a mindset", Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said.

"It's not any different from playing at home in my opinion".

"It shouldn't matter what the weather is or what stadium you're in or what color the uniforms are". "Championship teams and great players don't get distracted by those external factors". "You take a team to Louisville, early in the season, with a lot of new guys who haven't played on the road and that's a good experience". You have to have mental toughness. "I think we had a tremendous show considering the circumstances. We don't just play one coverage".

"We did that one time a number of years back, but that's not really who we are", Venables said.

"I enjoy going on the road", Swinney said.

Undefeated and ranked No. 2 in the AP poll, the defending champion Clemson Tigers are roughly a third of the way to reaching this season's college football national title game.

For the second time in three weeks, the Tigers will face a crowd that will have all day to prepare.

The Virginia Tech offensive line has only surrendered four sacks this season, but the Tigers have forced 17, only behind MI at 18.

"Auburn and Louisville were really, really good teams", Tigers receiver Hunter Renfrow said. What gets us excited is that we have another chance to play our best.

It's easily the biggest game at Lane Stadium since Fuente took over at the start of last season. Led by a potent rushing attack and efficient quarterback play, Virginia Tech welcomes in the defending national champions, though the Hokies are now a 7.5-point dog. The Hokies will put up a fight, but Clemson's defense should prove too strong for the home team to pull off the upset. We've had our noses blooded, we've had to respond to some adversity. Hopefully we can continue.

The Tigers have already proved too strong for a pair of top-15 teams. And it could be a precursor to another meeting in this year's ACC title game, December 2 in Charlotte.

When "College GameDay" came to Virginia Tech on September 1, 2007, the compelling story was not a duel between highly ranked teams but rather Tech's first home football game since the shootings that had taken place on the Tech campus on April 16 of that year.

"We've been a target for a long time".

"It was great to come here and just try to uplift some spirits", analyst Desmond Howard said. The Hokies will have to get some misdirection going, be it from screen passes, end arounds, or whatever else.

But nearly immediately following last weekend's 38-0 win against Old Dominion, players began addressing tonight's game in Blacksburg, Virginia. I mean, you look at (Jerod) Evans a year ago, you look at Paxton Lynch, (Fuente) made him a first-round pick. So Davis knows a little more about the history of the football program than the typical sports journalist.
