Virginia Tech Football: Ranking the 5 Most Consistent Players on the Hokies

During Virginia Tech's current run of 22 consecutive seasons appearing in a bowl game, consistency became the trademark of the Hokies' program. Defense, special teams and a strong running game powered the Hokies to multiple 10-win seasons and BCS appearances.
