The Virginia and Virginia Tech season-opening rivalry game is now one week away. The ACC and its media partners announced Friday that the Saturday, Sept. 19 game will kick off at 7:30 p.m. on ABC. This is the earliest date for the rivalry clash since 1987 when the teams also met on Sept. 19 (UVA won 14-13).

With the game inching closer, fans are getting excited about the showdown. The Cavaliers ended a 15-year losing streak in last season’s matchup and are looking for their first win in Blacksburg since the comeback of 1998. This year’s road trip won’t include the typical Lane Stadium crowd, however, as state guidelines with the ongoing pandemic have limited attendance.

Fans on the message board have been creating threads with some good discussion about the game this week. Some examples are in threads here, here, and here. Select posts are highlighted below.

With the rivalry game fresh on everyone’s minds, let’s go with the rest of’s Fan Friday feature!

  1. CONDITIONING will be the deciding factor here. All teams missed spring ball and it was up to the individual player to improve his strength and conditioning. We will find out in the 4th quarter. During the Fuente era VT has been beaten badly at home early in the year ie: Duke, GT, and UNC and a lot of this was due to conditioning.

    Get em Hoos

  2. Bronco gets his troops into shape: “AGAIN.” (x # of times until Boss Bronco is satisfied with what he’s seen)
    This pays off in the 4th quarter. Remember the 4th Q vs. vpi last year? That was a finish with an exclamation mark.
    And Bronco was pleased.
