Cavalier Football Notes: Virginia Tech
Virginia (8-4, 6-2 ACC)
at #19/22 Virginia Tech (8-3, 3-3 Big East)
Saturday, Nov. 30
Lane Stadium/Worshan Field
FINAL REGULAR SEASON GAME: The Cavaliers play their final regular season game against in-state foe Virginia Tech in the Dominion/Virginia Power Classic in Blacksburg on Saturday.
LAST WEEK: Virginia clinched a second-place finish in the ACC with a convincing 48-13 home win over 18th-ranked Maryland last weekend in a battle among the two teams battling for the position. The visiting Terrapins could have secured a share of the ACC title following Florida State’s loss to N.C. State earlier in the day, but after scoring an early touchdown things unraveled quickly for them.
Virginia Tech has lost three games in a row, including two at home, to fall to 8-3 overall this season. The Hokies have been ranked as high as third in the polls, but are now ranked 22nd in this week’s Associated Press poll and 19th in the USA Today/ESPN coaches poll.
TELEVISION: Saturday’s game is being televised nationally by ESPN. Dave Barnett calls the play-by-play, while Bill Curry provides the color commentary. Alex Flanagan is the sideline reporter.
RADIO: All Virginia games are broadcast on the Virginia Sports Network, originating at WINA/WWWV in Charlottesville. Mac McDonald calls the play-by-play. He is joined in the broadcast booth by Frank Quayle, the 1968 ACC Football Player of the Year and one of 50 players named to the ACC?s 50th Anniversary Team. Jed Williams provides sideline analysis.
