We recap Monday's VT press conference and look ahead to the Hokies' next stop, at Syracuse.

What are the Hokies saying coming off of their win at North Carolina? What do they see in their opponent this week, Syracuse? That and more in our Monday look at what's going on.

It's a big step up this week for Virginia Tech in the national rankings. After their 34-3 win Saturday at North Carolina, the Hokies are now No. 17 in the Associated Press' weekly poll and No. 19 in the USA Today/Coaches poll.

Coach Justin Fuente, junior cornerback Brandon Facyson, junior linebacker Andrew Motuapuaka and senior tackle Jonathan McLaughlin answered plenty of questions Monday from the media. And afterward, publisher Jason Stamm and staff writer Kelly Porazzo went over the latest.
