The Battle At Bristol keeps getting bigger and bigger. Former Hokie Bruce Smith will represent Virginia Tech for the coin toss at the September game.  The choice of Smith is a natural one, as he is a former All-American, and had a tremendous pro career.

The Battle At Bristol is sure to be a star studded affair, as both schools have began hyping the game since its inception. There have been press tours to New York City, and the concert announcement of Kenny Chesney. Newly retired Peyton Manning will represent the Vols, fresh off his Super Bowl win.  You know the game is big time when not one, but two celebrities are on hand for the coin toss.  The game will be played on September 10 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
