Virginia Tech vs. West Virginia to Kickoff in Primetime on Sunday

Tack on an extra delivery day for a matchup in transit since 2005.

[Virginia Tech Athletics]

Virginia Tech, your scheduled FedEx arrival is delayed a day.

The Hokies' contest against West Virginia is now set for a Sunday, September 3 kickoff at 7:30 PM.

"Thousands of our alums call Northern Virginia and the Capitol Region their home, so the chance to play in an NFL stadium in front of so many Hokies should be a great experience for our players and our fans," Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente said in a release. "We're also excited to showcase our program on national TV for a primetime audience, as we renew our rivalry with a talented and well-coached West Virginia team."

And as a reminder, the Black Diamond Trophy will be up for grabs.

The Drama!...

Let's Go Hokies!!

Interesting that they changed it. I have a wedding on September 2nd and wasn't going to be able to go while a friend who bought tickets has a wedding on the 3rd and now won't be able to go...

I swore off going back to that stadium after USC, Boise State and Cincinnati but...

I have a wedding out in Louisville...I was suuuper pissed when I heard they scheduled on the opening weekend (still not stoked), but this helps a little bit.

Oh, so they're going to move it to a primetime game on Sunday.

If its anything like the Boise game, the lots won't open til 2 and the metro will shut down by 11. Have fun, anyone who goes!

FedEx Field lots don't open until 4 hours before kickoff.

So... 3:30. And yes, the Metro will still shut down at 11.

Oh right, thanks for the clarification!

Well, at least we can always head to those local bars to.... oh wait... nevermind

The Copper Lot was the place to be for Boise. We were out there tailgating by 9:30am.

Shotgun.

Leonard. Duh.

... and miss the party in the back? Really?

The bus in and out of that area is the only way to go unless you have a helio! Take the survey!

If this is messed up.....just popped my cherry on survey creation.

Where is Lawson?!

Not sure how I feel about this, being that we had our plans all set for Saturday-Sunday and didn't want to be driving back home on Monday. Ah well, we'll figure it out.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

Think we could get Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth to get up from hibernation a week early?

I hope not, I have a lot of strong opinions about sports commentary and Chris Collingsworth is the absolute worst.

Preach.

Yeah - i cant stand him.

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

But then Disney might have to give Oswald the Bunny back to Universal...

Fuck Fedex field. I guess with the holiday people can do the Sunday but it is still a miserable place to get too, park at and leave

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

Never been there, but I frequent M&T Bank Stadium in B'more for a fair # of Ravens games. Other Ravens fans I know who have been to FedEx don't like it, but I can't tell if that's based on a biased opinion or not. But hey, if it is good enough for Army-Navy and other Navy games (ND, OSU, etc.), I think M&T would be a great venue for some of these marquis VT games. Only down side is the drive from VA and the DC burbs. Also, might be hard to schedule with Navy and UM wanting their marquis games at M&T, and working around the Ravens schedule (if a Sunday game was desired). Mass transit schedule to M&T also sucks, so I think that's more a regional problem with a bunch of half-wit clowns running those respective shows.

If Maryland hadn't run off to the Big Ten, we'd have played a game at M&T circa 2013 or 2014.

And now the keychain schedule I got from the hokie club has the wrong day on it......my OCD is going haywire.

When I was in school, we went to class on Labor Day and we liked it!
