Heading into the 2013 season opener against Alabama, Virginia Tech is considered the underdog. They haven't been this big of an underdog since 1992.
According to VegasInsider.com, Alabama ranges from an 18- to 20.5- point favorite over the Hokies. It was back on October 24, 1992 that the Hokies faced a 19-point spread against Miami. That's the last time they've seen something like this.
