Early-season Game Times Announced

Game times and TV coverage for five of Virginia Tech's 2008 football games were announced today on HokieSports.com. The game time for the opener against ECU (the worst kept secret of the last few weeks) will be at Noon at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. It's just as well. With the game being at a pro stadium with all the big parking lots, tailgating won't be as good as if it were on either campus.

Last year's home game against ECU was also at Noon. However, the Hokies didn't wake up until about 2:00 and needed a tremendous defensive play from Macho Harris to beat the Pirates. Hopefully the Hokies will be prepared from the start for this one. With all the new starters, they can't afford to come out sluggish.

Game 1 - Aug. 30 - ECU (Charlotte) - Noon - ESPN
Game 2 - Sept. 6 - Furman - 1:30 - TBA
Game 3 - Sept. 13 - Georgia Tech - 3:30 - ESPN/ABC
Game 8 - Nov. 6 - Maryland - 7:30 - ESPN
Game 9 - Nov. 13 - at Miami - 7:30 - ESPN
