Football schedules for the 2009 season were released for all 12 ACC schools
on Thursday, and it’s never too early to look ahead. The Hokies have a big-time

It used to be a common theme for opposing fans to make fun of Virginia Tech’s

November they travel to East Carolina for a Thursday night game. Throw in
Marshall, a respectable team, and that’s a very good schedule.
Other ACC teams aren’t exactly challenging themselves like the Hokies are
