I've confirmed earlier reports (first from Football Scoop) that Old Dominion is hiring former Maryland assistant Brian Stinespring, former Virginia Tech assistant Galen Scott and former East Carolina assistant Daric Riley. Stinespring will be tight ends coach and run game coordinator; Scott will coach defensive backs and Riley will coach outside linebackers. Some strong hires here by Bobby Wilder entering a key 2019 season.

Old Dominion's win over Virginia Tech was the largest upset between FBS opponents in the history of FPI game predictions -- which go back 14 years.

Heather Dinich ESPN Senior Writer 

Old Dominion pulled off the biggest upset of the season so far, as the 29-point underdogs shocked No. 13 Virginia Tech 49-35. It was the biggest upset by an FBS team over an ACC opponent in the past 40 seasons. C-USA had lost 52 straight games against ranked nonconference opponents. It was also another blow to an already-struggling ACC, as Boston College also lost to Purdue and is likely to fall out of the top 25. Clemson remains the league's lone playoff contender but would benefit most if Miami stays ranked and wins the Coastal. Assuming Clemson wins the Atlantic, it might not face a ranked opponent until the ACC title game. It's SOS will be questioned by the committee, which means little to no margin for error.

Old Dominion takes lead on 15-yard TD (0:17)
