I'm expecting a lot of offense in tonight's FedEx Orange Bowl game. Both defenses will be playing for stops and the unit that can produce the most of them walks away with the trophy. Both team defenses are similar in average points allowed but where I give Stanford the edge is on turnovers. I think the Cardinal defense will be able produce more than Virginia Tech and use it to turn a slight halftime deficit into a semi comfortable win.
