Virginia Tech quarterback Michael Brewer went down with a broken collarbone in the Hokies’ opening game against Ohio State. Up until Saturday, he hadn’t played in a game since.
He came into the game against Miami on Saturday and went 3-4 passing with 65 yards and a touchdown. That wasn’t enough to help the Hokies to a victory as Miami won the game 30-20.
According to Virginia Tech’s 247Sports page, head coach Frank Beamer announced that Brewer would make the start when the Hokies welcome in the Coastal Division-leading Duke Blue Devils. This will be Brewer’s first start since the Ohio State game.
Brewer had been projected to have a great year and had his team looking at an upset before suffering the injury against the Buckeyes. For his career, Brewer has thrown for 3,356 yards and 26 touchdowns, with his best year being the 2014 season.
The Hokies are currently 3-4 and 1-2 in the ACC. They still have a shot to win the Coastal Division, but they will need to win out and hope for other teams to fall later on down the road.
Having Brewer back will be huge for the Hokies.
