​Virginia Tech is coming off of a strong 2017 season, where they finished as the No. 22 ranked team with a 9-3 record.


The Hokies now matchup against the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the Camping World Bowl on Dec. 28. However, they will be without one of their key players on offense.


Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports reports Virginia Tech wide receiver Cam Phillips will be out for the bowl game due to a sports hernia injury.

​​As Feldman mentioned in his tweet, Phillips recorded 71 receptions for 964 yards and seven touchdowns this season for the Hokies. 


It is a huge blow for Virginia Tech, which looks to end their season on a high note in what is expected to be a high-scoring affair against Oklahoma State.

With his college career done, Phillips has a total of 236 receptions for 3,027 yards and 17 touchdowns.


Now, Virginia Tech will have to game plan without Phillips, as they look to improve their 13-17 overall bowl game record.
