With the NFL Draft finishing up on Saturday, Virginia Tech fans can turn their attention towards an all day Hokie-fest. Clear out your Sunday schedule or make room on your DVR as the ACC Network rolls around to VT Day. Each day the network is highlighting a different school with 24 hours of content across sports looking back at some of the best moments from the past few years.
From the school’s press release here is the day’s full schedule:
- Midnight – Men’s Basketball – Virginia Tech at Wake Forest (Feb. 16, 2010)
- 2 a.m. – Football – Virginia Tech at Miami (Oct. 5, 2019) * - change
- 4 a.m. – Men’s Basketball – North Carolina at Virginia Tech (Jan. 22, 2020)
- 6 a.m. – Softball - Virginia Tech vs. South Carolina (St. Pete Clearwater Elite Invitational) (Feb. 14, 2020)
- 8 a.m. – Football – Virginia at Virginia Tech (Nov. 23, 2018)
- 11 a.m. – Women’s Basketball – Virginia Tech at Virginia (Jan. 19, 2020)
- 12:30 p.m. – Track & Field – ACC Indoor Championship (Feb. 27 – 29, 2020)
- 2:30 p.m. – Men’s Basketball – Michigan State vs. Virginia Tech (Maui Jim Maui Invitational) (Nov. 25, 2019)
- 4 p.m. – ACC Traditions – “Skipper”
- 4:30 p.m. – Football – Virginia Tech at Ohio State (Sept. 6, 2014)
- 7:30 p.m. – Men’s Basketball – Duke at Virginia Tech (Feb. 26, 2019)
- 9 p.m. – Football – Virginia Tech vs. Boston College (2007 ACC Championship) (Dec. 1, 2007)
As one might expect the day is football and men’s basketball heavy, with each sport getting four games a piece. The ACC Network is focused on ratings, but it would have been nice to see one the Hokies’ soccer and baseball programs featured as well. Many Tech fans will be familiar with a number of these lineup choices as they pull mainly from the past few years in the ACC.
The most interesting options for the day (to me) are:
- The 9 pm nightcap showing the Hokies second ACC football championship 12.5 years ago.
- 4 o’clock’s feature on Skipper - since it’ll be original content rather than just a replay.
- The midday ACC Track & Field Indoor Championship because (a) that doesn’t get much coverage on TV typically and (b) the Hokies had a dramatic comeback on the final day.
What are you most looking forward to seeing?
