“Virginia Tech is honored to be able to participate in such an outstanding event,” Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams said. “To be able to help these areas that have seen such devastation due to the hurricanes is the right thing to do. We will be able to play a game against a top-level opponent and have the ability to help people in need in the process. I applaud Coach Martin and his staff for putting this together on such short notice. Plus, there is the ability for our fans, who may not be able to attend the game the opportunity to give through the online link. That’s what the Hokie Nation does, help those in need.”
