    5 Keys To The Schedule

    – The Hokies start out the season with a nice scrimmage against Liberty to ease into things before facing Tennessee in a fun game at Bristol Motor Speedway. East Carolina and Notre Dame make it one of the ACC’s tougher all-around non-conference schedules.

    – There can’t be any complaints about the interdivisional schedule, missing both Clemson and Florida State and playing Boston College and Syracuse. The date with the Eagles is at home to start the ACC campaign.

    – The week off on October 1st is a must to gear up for a brutal run. The Hokies have to go on the road for four of their next five games and five of their next seven, including dates at North Carolina, Pitt and Notre Dame.

    – On the plus side, four of the first five games are at home. Tech only leaves Virginia once until October 8th.

    – WATCH OUT FOR … the road trip to Duke. It comes at the end of the rough run road games in the dog days of the ACC season. It comes just after the trip to Pitt and before the Georgia Tech game.
