Who Our Soon to be Vanquished Foes Play Before and After Us

No team has a bye week before playing the Hokies this year. That's really not that suprising considering college football's regular season is 14 weeks this year compared to last year's 15. Teams in conferences with championship games have to cram their 12 regular season games into the season's first 13 weeks. And since the Hokies don't play any teams from the six conferences that don't host championship games. There's not much extra prep time for our soon to be vanquished foes in 2009.

2009 Virginia Tech Schedule
Opponent Date Pre Post
vs. Alabama Sept. 5 None Florida International
Marshall Sept. 12 Southern Illinois Bowling Green
Nebraska Sept. 19 Arkansas State UL-Lafayette
Miami Sept. 26 Ga. Tech (9/17) Oklahoma
at Duke Oct. 3 NC Central at NC State
Boston College Oct. 10 Florida State NC State
at Georgia Tech Oct. 17 at Florida State at Virginia
Bye Week Oct. 24 - -
North Carolina Oct. 29 FSU (10/22) Duke
at East Carolina Nov. 5 at Memphis (10/27) at Tulsa (11/15)
at Maryland Nov. 14 at NC State at Florida State
NC State Nov. 21 Clemson North Carolina
at Virginia Nov. 28 at Clemson None


Only three opponents (Alabama, Miami and ECU) will have more than a week before playing the Hokies. It's also interesting that three consecutive opponents play Florida State before playing us.

Georgia Tech got the short end of the scheduling stick. It plays two road games, then faces us in Atlanta and then has two road games after that. Brutal.
