Sad that our game at ODU might be a casualty of necessary changes to our

schedule this fall (if we have a season). Odds favor a shortened season, maybe just conference games. This game with UVA is our very first at ODU, our one visit there in exchange for their two trips to Scott Stadium. The folks in Norfolk---not just ODU fans but the tons of UVA fans in that area---have been really looking forward to this game ever since it was announced several years ago. I know I was looking forward to seeing my first football game there in decades, ever since I saw games there in what used to be called the Oyster Bowl in what was then called Foreman Field (now Ballard Stadium). Even saw Maury-Granby high school games there, which was a huge rivalry game.
Now, even if the UVA game is played this year, it's likely not many of us will get in, with attendance restricted to keep proper distancing. With a stadium that only seats 20K or so at capacity, my chances aren't good. That's one game where StubHub prices could hit the roof.
