Virginia Tech’s game with Georgia Tech will kick off at noon. Also, two Hokies earned National Player of the Week honors after the big win on Saturday night.

The Hokies’ annual matchup with the Yellow Jackets will be held on Saturday, September 20. It will kick off at noon, and the game will be televised by either ESPN or ESPNU. That announcement will come at a later date, following this coming weekend’s games.

Nicolas, Clarke named National Players of the Week

This doesn’t happen very often. Two players off Virginia Tech’s defense have been named National Players of the Week.

Dadi Nicolas: National Defensive Player of the Week by 247Sports. Nicolas finished with three tackles for loss, two sacks, and five quarterback hurries.

Deon Clarke: Tech’s junior linebacker was named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week. He had 10 tackles, two tackles for loss, a sack, broke up a pass, and had two quarterback hurries.

The Hokies also swept the defensive awards in the ACC this week. Nicolas was named defensive lineman of the week, Clarke is linebacker of the week, while Kyshoen Jarrett is defensive back of the week.

  1. You saw it with your own eyes, you will never see a better defensive game then how Bud Foster set up the defense for the Ohio State game. Give He and Frank all the credit, and the players for
    for doing what was ask in one week time frame. It doesn’t get any better!!! GO HOKIES!!!

  2. I don’t mind the occasional noon start, but back-to-back weeks is awful. Working Friday nights in Northern VA means for some tough very late, or very early travel.

  3. Yeah, once again, we have to shorten our tailgating so ESPN can pick their time. If they want better ratings, put us on at 8pm like this week. So, tired of Tech getting jerked around by the 4 letter. Better ratings for them doesn’t mean any more $$ for Tech.

  4. I don’t know who I have to thank but Thank You , whoever, for not screwing around with the games uniforms. We looked just great —— and played just great. Way to go team.

    1. I would like to see him as the next head coach after HCFB retires. I would expect that the Defensive Capability would go down, though, because CBF already give 110% of his B,S&T and Focus on Defense. He definitely would deserve more money to stay the DC when someone else got hired as HC.

      I think CSL is great as the OC. Is there anyone 25 years younger than Frank Beamer that could come in and manage both OC and DC, and keep the relationship between the rest of the coaches intact?

      If Bud became HC, could CTG succeed as DC to the level of Bud’s current performance? Who then would be responsible for DB’s, or would that remain CTG’s responsibility?

      I understand that this is probably 2 years early thinking.

  5. I really hope that the game time decision was 100% not in Whit’s control. If he had any input, I hope it was for 3:30 or later.

    1. TV times are never in an AD’s control. Never. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever. Jim Weaver had 0% to do with our TV times, and Whit Babcock has 0% to do with our TV times. We got the noon slot because the noon ESPN games get better ratings than the 3:30 games.
