Virginia Tech’s 2014 matchup with Ohio State has been moved up to September 6. The game in Columbus was originally scheduled to be played on September 20.
Per a media release from Virginia Tech, the date was changed because of a request made by ESPN.
“ESPN approached both schools about the date change and the possibility of either a full national telecast at 3:30 p.m. or a primetime telecast. Both schools supported the change.”
The Hokies open next season with William & Mary on August 30. They will host East Carolina the week following the Ohio State game.
