Virginia Tech has relied on its deep and talented defensive front to turn opposing offensive lines from dams to spillways. It has been the vanguard for a defense that ranks second nationally in total yards allowed (190.7 per game), tackles for loss (29), passing yards allowed (106.3 per game) and interceptions (seven).

"This year, we're taking it one day at a time and punching the clock and taking care of the little things," Collins added. "As a group right now, we're not thinking too much where we're ranked.
