The 2004 Virginia Tech Hokies football team represented Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State Universitymarker during the 2004 NCAA Division I-A football season. The team's head coach was Frank Beamer.

Virginia Tech began the season unranked nationally, having suffered a meltdown at the end of the 2003 season. The Hokies faced a daunting schedule, beginning with a nationally-televisioned game against the defending national co-champion USC Trojans. That game, known as the BCA Classic, was the first NCAA college football game of the year, and would be followed by a tough conference schedule in the Hokies' new conference, the then-eleven-team Atlantic Coast Conference. Some publications picked the Hokies to finish as low as 8th place in the conference. Following a home loss to in which the Hokies missed a would-be winning field goal as time expired, the prospects of keeping alive their 11-year streak of consecutive bowl game appearances seemed bleak.

The Hokies' season had a turning point in the fourth quarter of their game against Georgia Tech in Atlantamarker on ESPN Thursday night college football. This game was a must-win for Tech. Needing seven wins for bowl eligibility, and facing extremely tough opponents in the remainder of its schedule, Tech could not afford to lose the game. Trailing 17-7 at halftime, Tech went on to score 25 unanswered points in the last 5:44 of the game - passes of 80 and 51 yards and a 64-yard interception return - to turn an 8-point deficit into a 14-point victory.

Tech would go on to win their remaining regular-season games, including an upset of the , to clinch the ACC championship. Following its success in the ACC, Virginia Tech was awarded a bid to the 2005 Sugar Bowl, a Bowl Championship Series game in New Orleansmarker, Louisianamarker. Virginia Tech would face Auburn University, a team that had gone undefeated in the regular season but was denied a bid to the national championship game by virtue of its lower rank in the BCS poll. In a game that was not decided until the final two minutes, Virginia Tech lost to Auburn 16-13, bringing an end to the 2004 Virginia Tech football season.

Notes

  1. The rule allowing 6-6 teams to go to bowl games was in place only for years where all teams played 12 games - the Hokies only had 12 games because of a preseason game and thus needed seven wins to be bowl eligible.
  2. "Auburn 16, Virginia Tech 13", January 3, 2005. Hokiesports.com [1] — Accessed July 21, 2007.
  3. Cedric Humes started the first four games and Mike Imoh started the others.
  4. Clifton was also the emergency quarterback
  5. Josh Hyman began the season at flanker, then moved to split end for the remainder of the season.
