BLACKSBURG, Va. -

The Hokies return home to face North Carolina this weekend and have a chance to take control of the Coastal Division race thanks to Thursday's win at Georgia Tech.

The Hokies face a North Carolina team that gave up 55 points in a 24 point loss to East Carolina over the weekend, the same East Carolina team that the Hokies handled just over two weeks ago in Greenville.  But Coach Frank Beamer isn't a big believer in the transitive property, especially when it comes to college football.

The Hokies could regain the services of cornerback Antone Exum this week against the Tarheels.  Exum was scheduled to see his doctor on Monday to determine if he is ready to return to the field following ACL surgery in the off-season.
