On the off chance that you take a gander at the 2011 Virginia Tech football plan, you will see numerous natural things yet in addition some new things we haven’t found lately. In 2011 the Hokies will have their typical ACC adversaries both home and out and about, including a couple of prominent Thursday night games. In any case, what is deficient with regards to that we’ve found as of late is the prominent out-of-meeting match-up that typically comes from the get-go in the season.
As of late, Virginia Tech has begun the season with a prominent out-of-gathering match-up. This is typically a made for TV game that is against a head rival that is positioned, and the game is advertised all during the slow time of year. Virginia Tech has messed around like this against USC, LSU, Alabama, and a year ago Boise State. While these games make extraordinary expectation for the season, and incredible inspiration for the group, they have a drawback (well, at any rate for the Hokies) in that Virginia Tech has lost the greater part of them. This places them in a prompt gap to start the season.
We don’t have the foggiest idea whether this is purposeful or not, however the 2011 season doesn’t have this kind of game. Truth be told, there is no convincing out-of-meeting match-up on the calendar by any stretch of the imagination. Despite what might be expected, the Hokies start the season with 4 OOC adversaries from ‘mid-major’ meetings, including a games against East Carolina, Arkansas State, Marshall, and a Div I-AA group Appalachian State. In spite of being I-AA, Appalachian State is a decent program who has satisfied for a few ongoing national titles.
After those four opening games, the Hokies get into ACC activity full swing for the remainder of the period. In 2011, Virginia Tech has home games against Clemson, Miami, Boston College, and North Carolina (UNC). They are out and about in the ACC against Wake Forest, Duke, Georgia Tech, and Virginia (UVa). A more intensive look uncovers some intriguing perceptions.
The Hokies obviously have a positive ACC plan. Their hardest rivals are all at home (Clemson, Miami, BC, and UNC). The lesser rivals are out and about (Wake, Duke, and UVa). The ACC plan lines up pleasantly for the Hokies in 2011.
Likewise, given the Hokies will break in another quarterback in 2011 (Logan Thomas will take over for graduating Tyrod Taylor), having 4 mid-significant groups to open the season is unquestionably a bit of leeway. This unquestionably allows the Hokies to break in Thomas before hitting the more troublesome ACC plan.
At long last, while there is no large early season OOC coordinate, there will be some huge TV games for Virginia Tech this year. In particular, the Hokies will play at Georgia Tech and at home against UNC in consecutive Thursday night games in November. Virginia Tech versus UNC football tickets will be probably the most hard to get in 2011.
