Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Purdue Boilermakers: Preview

There are only six games being played in Lane Stadium this season. Usually, the schedulers seem to manage to get a 7th game from the non-conference slate on Worsham Field, but this season that didn’t happen. It is unfortunate because those games are usually non-conference warm-ups saved for White Outs and such. This season, there aren’t any FCS teams on the schedule, and that means one less home game. In fact, there are actually two B1G games scheduled, this one home, and the Rutgers game in Piscataway. There is the “Humm” factor with scheduling two B1G teams in a season as conference realignment looms and Tech’s open preference for that conference as a new home, but that’s a story for later as things develop on that front.
