The Excitement is Building for the Battle at Bristol

Pilot Flying J and Bristol Motor Speedway have released a hype video about the Battle at Bristol.

Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

The hype and excitement for the clash between the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Tennessee Volunteers is building.  With the start of the college football season only being about three months away and the early college previews and predictions hitting newsstands and websites the hype for football is building to its eventual crescendo.

One of the biggest, if not the biggest, early games of the season is certainly the Battle at Bristol.  With tickets already sold out, it is widely expected that this will be the largest college football game in the history of the NCAA.  The Bristol Motor Speedway will be accommodating over 150,000 fans when the Hokies and Vols meet on September 10, 2016.

In the spirit of contributing to the hype and excitement of the 2016-2017 NCAA football season the folks at Pilot Flying J and Bristol Motor Speedway have produced the first, of what I imagine to be many, hype videos.
