Virginia Tech’s season opener against NC State has been moved from September 12 to September 26. The Hokies’ season opener is now scheduled for September 19 in Lane Stadium against in-state rival UVA.
Home Football Schedule Alert 🚨
— HokieSports (@hokiesports) August 26, 2020
The reason for the postponement of the NC State game is because of a COVID-19 outbreak within the Wolfpack athletic department, and NC State will not be able to practice effectively over the next couple of weeks.
Both Tech and NC State had a bye week scheduled for September 26, so it was easy to move the game. However, now that the game has been moved, the Hokies will have to play 10 games over the course of 10 consecutive weeks from September 19 through November 21.
