 * - Under NCAA Rules, Virginia Tech does not count statistics from bowl games in the team or individual statistical totals for games prior to the 2002 season. But for the
          sake of this chart, their stats are what they would be with the bowl games added in.
 † - no bowl game added in (Tech didn’t qualify for one)                                                                 ^ - started the 1986 season under Bill Dooley
