Virginia Tech’s 2011 football schedule has been released. The Hokies will
play six games at home and six on the road. The schedule features two huge games
in Lane Stadium in early October, and the usual November Thursday night
contests.

For the first time in quite awhile, the Hokies do not have a high-profile
opponent in the month of September. However, the months of October and November
will be interesting, as usual.

2011
Virginia Tech Football Schedule
Date Team
Sat., Sept. 3 Appalachian State
Sat., Sept. 10 at East Carolina
Sat., Sept. 17 Arkansas State
Sat., Sept. 24 at Marshall
Sat., Oct. 1 Clemson
Sat., Oct. 8 Miami
Sat., Oct. 15 at Wake Forest
Sat., Oct. 22 Boston College
Sat., Oct. 29 at Duke
Thu., Nov. 10 at Georgia Tech
Thu., Nov. 17 North Carolina
Sat., Nov. 26 at UVA

 

The September schedule features two home games the Hokies shouldn’t have any
trouble winning, against Appalachian State and Arkansas State. Road trips to
East Carolina and Marshall could be traps, but Tech does outclass both of those
teams in terms of talent. Overall, it’s a good schedule to break in a new
starting quarterback.

By October 1, Logan Thomas better be ready, because the Hokies will host
Clemson and Miami on back-to-back Saturdays to open the month. Road trips to
Wake Forest and Duke will sandwich a home game against Boston College to close
the month.

The Hokies will get their bye week in the first week of November. They’ll
close the season with a Thursday night road game at Georgia Tech, a Thursday
night home game against UNC, and the trip to UVA. If Tech is fortunate enough to
win the Coastal Division, they will play for the ACC Championship in Charlotte
on December 3.

After playing four non-conference teams to open the 2011 season, the Hokies
will close the year playing eight straight ACC opponents. Their last four games
of the season come against Coastal Division teams, so expect the Coastal to be
decided sometime between October 29 and November 26. Their biggest competition
in the Coastal Division will be Miami, and that will be Tech’s second ACC game,
on October 8.

TSL will have more in-depth coverage of Virginia Tech’s 2011 football
schedule throughout the week.
