BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech quarterback Michael Brewer hasn't had to wait long for his first huge stage.

The Hokies play at No. 8 Ohio State on Saturday night.

Virginia Tech is no stranger to big games, but has struggled to show it belongs among the elite in recent years. The Hokies have lost six of their last seven games against ranked opponents, many of them in lopsided fashion.

Brewer says a victory before 105,000 fans at Ohio Stadium would be "huge" to show that the Hokies are still a powerhouse program. The Buckeyes have won 25 consecutive regular season games, the longest such streak in the nation, and 64 in a row at home against unranked non-conference foes.

Says Brewer: "This is what college football is all about."
