Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets: Complete Game Preview
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Virginia Tech Hokies narrowly avoided a crushing defeat with last week's triple-overtime win over Marshall to move to 3-1. Unfortunately for the Hokies, they are on a short week and must be ready to play on Thursday as they travel to Atlanta to face Georgia Tech in their first ACC contest.

The Yellow Jackets enter Thursday on a short week too, having defeated North Carolina 28-20 at home. The Jackets improved to 3-0, 2-0 in ACC play.

Since the Hokies entered the ACC in 2004, Georgia Tech has been their primary rival in the Coastal Division of the ACC. In fact, since the ACC championship game was instituted in 2005, either the Hokies or Jackets have represented the Coastal every year. 

The Hokies have won the last three meetings between the schools and are 7-3 all-time against Georgia Tech. Paul Johnson's only win over VT occurred in 2009, but his flexbone offense has given Bud Foster trouble over the years.

The two schools opened the 2012 season with the Hokies winning an overtime thriller in Blacksburg. Will this game be as exciting as that one?

  • When: Thursday, September 26, 2013
  • Where: Bobby Dodd Stadium, Atlanta, Ga. (55,000)
  • Time: 7:30 p.m.
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: Virginia Tech IMG Sports Network. Here is a complete list of stations by area. 
  • Spread: Georgia Tech is currently a seven-point favorite.
