Gathering his players for their team meeting last Sunday the day after a 64-17 win at East Carolina , Fuente talked about staying on task.
He stressed the importance of a disciplined approach against an ODU team seeking its first win against a Power 5 conference program in what will be its sixth try since moving in 2014 to the Football Bowl Subdivision.
In an effort to keep minds from wandering this week to the highly-anticipated matchup that awaits Sept. 30 in Lane Stadium, which could very well end up being the home of ESPN’s College GameDay for the morning, Tech utilized tunnel vision imagery.
After wins against Albany and Massachusetts to start this season, ODU came back to Earth last week when it was trounced 53-23 at home against North Carolina.
He came in against UNC in the second quarter for the first game action of his college career and played the rest of the afternoon, finishing 9-of-20 passing for 139 yards and two touchdowns.
