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