The Virginia Tech Hokies opened their 2013 with a daunting task; try and defeat two-time defending national champion Alabama. It didn't happen and the Hokies return to the friendly confines of Lane Stadium this Saturday for a matchup with the FCS Western Carolina Catamounts.
The Catamounts opened their season against Middle Tennessee, losing 45-24.
It should be a tale of two weeks for the Hokies: The Catamounts are one of the worst programs in all of the FCS. They have not won a conference game in the last two seasons and have just nine wins over the last five years.
This will be the first-ever matchup between the schools. They do have something in common, though; they’ve both lost to Alabama in the past calendar year. The Catamounts were defeated by the Crimson Tide 49-0 last November.
