Virginia Tech’s 2020 football schedule has been released, with the biggest news being the return of Thursday night football to Lane Stadium, and the annual VT-UVA matchup moved back to the final Saturday of the regular season.
Here’s the schedule, which features seven home games in Lane Stadium…
|Sat. 9/12||PENN STATE||TBD|
|Sat. 9/19||@Middle TN State||TBD|
|Sat. 9/26||NORTH ALABAMA||TBD|
|Sat. 10/3||GEORGIA TECH||TBD|
|Thu. 10/22||BOSTON COLLEGE||TBD|
|Sat. 10/31||@ Louisville||TBD|
|Sat. 12/5||ACC Champ. Gm.||TBD|
The Hokies only play back-to-back road games once, and that comes against Louisville and Pitt. Tech gets a bye week ahead of their Thursday night home game against Boston College, and that game being on a Thursday night also means they will get extra time to prepare for their road trip to Louisville on Halloween.
The Hokies are coming off an 8-5 season, and many preseason predictions have Virginia Tech and North Carolina as the two favorites in the Coastal Division this season. Those teams will face each other in Chapel Hill on Saturday, October 10. Of course, the biggest home game of the season will come in September when the Hokies host the Penn State Nittany Lions, a game that has been on the minds of VT fans for quite awhile.
The Spring Game (not shown) is scheduled for April 18 at 3:30 PM.
We’ll have more on Virginia Tech’s 2020 football schedule in today’s podcast, which is coming up at 10 AM, as well as a TSL Pass article on the schedule this afternoon.
