No. 15 Hokies Not Taking Austin Peay Lightly

Posted: Updated:

Virginia Tech isn't taking a mismatched opponent lightly -- not even Austin Peay.

The No. 15 Hokies have a short week after playing Georgia Tech on Monday night. They need to think back only two years to what happened the last time they played a second game in six days: a loss to FCS-level James Madison.

The memory lingers for linebacker Bruce Taylor and his teammates. Taylor says the loss taught a valuable lesson.

Austin Peay in Tennessee is from Hokies coach Frank Beamer's old stomping grounds, the Ohio Valley Conference.

The Governors are coming off a 49-10 loss to Western Kentucky, a game in which they completed just two passes for 11 yards.

The school hasn't beaten an FBS-level school since Kansas State in 1987.
