The Hokies have long held a strong relationship with the New York Yankees that began after the tragic events of April 16, 2007. Athletic director Whit Babcock spoke on that relationship.

Virginia Tech has long valued its relationship with the Yankees organization and we’re pleased to finally have the Hokies participate in this bowl game at Yankee Stadium. The Virginia Tech community will always be grateful for the generosity and graciousness that the Yankees organization and the Steinbrenner family extended to us following the 2007 tragedy on our campus.

The Terrapins and Hokies enters the bowl game with identical 6-6 records. The Hokies have won five of their previous six meetings with Maryland, but the Terps won the last meeting in overtime back in 2013, before they left the ACC for the Big Ten.
