Virginia Tech to honor former great Loria vs. Marshall

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Virginia Tech will honor former great Frank Loria by wearing maroon helmets with orange and white stripes and the old T within the V logo during Saturday's game against Marshall. The helmet is a replica of the one worn by Loria during a brilliant Tech career. At Marshall, Loria coached under Rick Tolley, a 1960 letterwinner at Tech. Both died in the tragic Marshall plane crash in 1970 following a trip home from a game at East Carolina.
