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.
