This is it! Big Game #1 for all of the marbles for the season. Win this and we still have to beat UVA to go bowling. Lose it, and we are out and the streak is done. What’s this one going to be. Take the poll, comment. GO HOKIES!!!
This is a rivalry folks. It’s a no holds barred long term crossing bowl games (Peach 1980/81), into the Big East, and right into the ACC. The Conference even made sure that we’d be playing each other each season. It was supposed to be the Coastal Championship game. That didn’t happen. We have bowl eligibility on the line. They have a four game losing streak. This is going to be "A Game". GO HOKIES!!!!
A few more things for this evening. Men’s Basketball nabs a win. Tremaine shows up for a visit, and the uniform of the day.
There aren’t any real scores to report on, but there are some big things happening today. Signings, signings, and more.
This is it, folks. Crunch time. We need to go 2-0 to nab a booger. Before we start into the run up to the last two games, where the heck are we? What happened? Why are we in this shape? This season has been one for the record books, that’s for sure.
Virginia Tech and the VTCC honor Ensign Sarah Mitchell, the men’s and women’s soccer programs are in their NCAA tournaments, Greg Stroman does good things for the ‘Skins, and more Hokie pets!
The bowl streak is in major jeopardy.
It’s game time. 3:30 at Heinz Field in the cold snap of mid fall for western Pennsylvania. The weather isn’t much different from the New River Valley Plateau. Will Tech show up and play a full game? Will Pitt grind us out? Let’s see.
This is not going to be an easy trip down chrystal ball alley. Every game is must win, at this point. This team finally has to play a full game. Pitt is beatable. We need to know that.
The Hokies haven’t fared too well at Heinz Field over the years.
Women’s basketball kicks of their season with win, softball releases their schedule, some NFL Hokies meet up, and the the VTvsPITT pump-up video is out!
Saturday at 3:30 the Hokies take to the "Big Ketchup" and face off against the Pitt Panthers. It’s going to be a tough game. It’s always a tough game with them. The outcome is totally unknown except that whatever comes out is going to be banged up even more than when it came in.
Here are some of the best 2nd half pictures. There are lots more, but in reviewing them I started to get sort of upset. This is a game that we could have won. It was really that close up until the offense going into nibble and panic mode.
