Game Times, TV Info Released For Four Virginia Tech Football Games

Virginia Tech will open its season vs. Old Dominion on Saturday, Sept. 2 at 8 p.m. ET. (Brian Bishop)

On Wednesday, ESPN and the ACC announced kickoff times and TV designations for the first three weeks of the 2023 college football season, along with non-weekend games. Information for four Virginia Tech games was released:

Saturday, Sept. 2 vs. Old Dominion — 8 p.m. ET, ACC Network
Saturday, Sept. 9 vs. Purdue — 12 p.m. ET, ESPN2
Saturday, Sept. 16 at Rutgers — 3:30 p.m. ET, Big Ten Network
Thursday, Oct. 26 vs. Syracuse — 7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

The Hokies open their season against the Monarchs on Sept. 2. They’re 2-0 against ODU in Lane Stadium with wins in 2017 and 2019.

Sept. 9 marks the second-ever matchup between the Hokies and Purdue. The Boilermakers, fresh off their Big Ten West Division title, venture to Southwest Virginia for a return trip from when Virginia Tech traveled to West Lafayette, Ind. in 2015. Frank Beamer & Co. won that game 51-24.

The Hokies and Rutgers met 12 times as Big East members, a series VT won 11-1. Virginia Tech ventures to Piscataway, N.J. on Sept. 16; the Scarlet Knights will return the favor in 2024. It’ll be Tech’s first football game on the Big Ten Network, too.

Syracuse comes to Blacksburg for a Thursday night clash in October, which will feature on ESPN. The Hokies and Orange have never played a non-Saturday contest; Tech’s lost four of the last five in the series, including the 2021 meeting at home.

  1. I’m just happy it’s not a noon start, more time to tailgate, although it’s nothing like Blacksburg

  2. I went to Ruts back when were good and MV1 was playing. Of course we rolled.

    How times have changed.

  3. I have lived in New Jersey since 1990 and have attended a number of VT/Rutgers games in Piscataway. I will attend the game on 9/16 along with my wife, also a VT grad, and the rest of my family, including grandkids. My two daughters both graduated from Rutgers, and my eldest daughter is a professor there. My daughters are not avid football fans, so a Virginia Tech win will not put a damper on the weekend.

    Go Hokies!
