Virginia Tech’s October 13 game at North Carolina will kick off at 7pm, and it will be televised nationally by either ESPN2 or ESPNU. It will be the Hokies’ third consecutive night game.
The Tar Heels are 1-3 on the season and 1-1 in ACC play. They have a bye week before facing the Hokies, who are 3-1 on the season and 2-0 in the ACC. Tech will face Notre Dame this Saturday night at 8pm on ABC.
In other news, it will be Frank Beamer weekend in Blacksburg for the Notre Dame game. From a Virginia Tech press release this morning…
“At 4:45 p.m. (approximately three hours and 15 minutes prior to kickoff), a monument celebrating Coach Beamer will be unveiled at Moody Plaza, located on the Southwest corner of the Lane Stadium footprint adjacent to Beamer Way. Fans and members of the public are encouraged to attend. Unlike other monuments honoring iconic figures, this tribute to Coach Beamer will be devoid of any pedestal and will be very approachable just like the man who was taught the values of hard work and loyalty on his family’s farm in rural Hillsville, Virginia.”
Miniature replicas of the monument will be available to the first 5,000 fans at the Notre Dame game, and a limited number of replicas will be available for purchase beginning at 10am on Tuesday.
