Update: WTVR Reports Hokies Will Play Boise State at FedEx Field Next Season

It looks like we're finally starting to get some details on the rumored Virginia Tech football games in Washington, DC. WTVR in Richmond reported last night the Hokies will open the 2010 season at FedEx Field against Boise State.

Boise State will replace Syracuse, which has apparently asked out of its contract to play Virginia Tech in 2010 and 2011. However, the Syracuse date was not Virginia Tech's opener. That game was scheduled for Sept. 25. Right now Tech is scheduled to play Central Michigan on Sept. 4. This is extremely unofficial, but according to the future schedules page at NationalChamps.net, the Chips do not have a game scheduled for Sept. 25.

We'll see if Tech simply moves CMU to Sept. 25 to accomodate Boise State for the opener. Right now Boise is scheduled to play Oregon State on Sept. 25.

While there has been no official announcement from either school, OBNUG is already excited about the game and so am I. It's another chance for the Hokies to play on a national stage and it also shows the Hokies aren't afraid to play anyone. Tech has a history of scheduling mid-major teams like ECU and Southern Miss. Scheduling Boise State simply continues that trend.

I'll keep an ear to the ground for any news on who the Hokies will schedule for 2011 and whether or not that game will also be in DC. Stay tuned.
