Virginia Tech Football has announced a series with Vanderbilt, to be played in 2024 in Nissan Stadium in Nashville and 2025 in Lane Stadium.
This series fulfills the “SEC opponent to be named later” provision announced in a major future football schedules update from October 31st.
“Playing Vanderbilt in Nashville, in the relative near term, provides a drivable destination for our fans in a major market with a strong Tech alumni base,” Virginia Tech Director of Athletics Whit Babcock said in a hokiesports.com press release. “Vanderbilt should also be a nice draw and addition to our ticket packages in Blacksburg.”
Virginia Tech is now scheduled to play three SEC opponents in the next 18 seasons: Vanderbilt in 2024 and 2025, Ole Miss in 2032 and 2037, and Alabama in 2034 and 2035. Here’s a look at Virginia Tech’s future out of conference Power 5 opponents, as well as BYU and Notre Dame.
