Va Tech Football – 2015 Season Schedule
The Hokies will kick off their season against national champions Ohio State in a Monday night showdown. Virginia Tech handed the Buckeyes their only loss last season, so let’s hope we have a repeat.
The Hokies will continue their ongoing tradition of a Thursday night, but will not be hosting this year’s game a Lane Stadium. Prior to 2013, Virginia Tech had hosted at least one Thursday night game for 10 consecutive seasons.
“The ACC and ESPN are aware of our desire to continue to play a Thursday night game in Lane Stadium annually, if possible,” Athletics Director Whit Babcock said previously. “The Thursday night options available to the ACC, in reality, were only weeks 5, 8, and 12, but with our slate of opponents for those weeks (Pitt, Duke, and North Carolina, respectively), at least one of the teams in each game would have had extra rest, which is not allowed by ACC scheduling parameters.”
“We want to have the best opportunity to win and, in the case of week 5, it was important to us that we host a Saturday game on full rest following two consecutive road non-conference games. I am hopeful, though, that we will return to the Thursday night game rotation in 2016.”
