Week 7

Good morning, Hokie Nation! Football is back this afternoon as we are passing the halfway point of the college football season. The Miami Hurricanes travel to Lane Stadium to take on the Virginia Tech Hokies at 12:30 EST on ESPN3. Last week ended in another loss for the Hokies against Pittsburgh, falling 45-29. Overall, the Hokies had a pretty good game despite the loss. Once again, Kaleb Smith showed he is WR1, going for 152 yards receiving. Da’Wain Lofton also had a solid game for Virginia Tech with a 43-yard touchdown catch. Don’t forget the return of Malachi Thomas, who had 15 carries for 84 yards and a TD in last Saturday's game. Look for him to get more carries this afternoon. The Pitt offense tied their season high in points against the VT defense, which has allowed over 30 points in each of their last 3 contests. This afternoon they will be going against an air raid offense in Miami, so let’s hope they bring that lunch pail energy.

The Miami Hurricanes are coming off a close game in which they lost 27-24 to the North Carolina Tar Heels. Tyler Van Dyke had a very strong game a week out from being benched against Middle Tennessee. He went off for 496 yards and 3 touchdowns. Look for him to try and air the ball out against the Hokies.


Low temperatures are set for the morning but will rise hourly before gametime. The weather for the game will have temperatures in the 70's, perfect for some afternoon football at Lane Stadium.

Born in Chesapeake and raised into a family of hokies, Virginia Tech is where I call home now. Attended New River Community College as a freshman and now a sophomore at VT as a transfer student in Fall 2022. Majoring in Sports Media and Analytics, I’m excited for what’s to come for me as a student at VT.

Virginia Tech sports has always been something I have been a fan of. From afternoons in Lane Stadium to nights in Cassell Coliseum, I have loved every second of it no matter the outcome.

One of my first memories of being a Tech fan was our upset win against Ohio State 35-21 where CB Donovan Riley had the game sealing pick-6. More recently, beating UNC in 6 overtimes, our run to the sweet 16, and of course winning the men’s basketball ACC Championship with upsets over UNC and Duke.
