Hokies, OSU to play on Labor Day 2015

Virginia Tech and Ohio State have agreed to move the return game of their football home-and-home series in 2015 to Labor Day Monday night, Sept. 7, the two schools announced Thursday. The game will be televised nationally by ESPN as part of its agreement with the ACC and will be played at Lane Stadium. The game was originally scheduled for Sept. 26 of that same year.

In making that move, two other games were moved: Tech’s home game against Furman has moved from Sept. 19 to Sept. 12, 2015 and Tech’s game at East Carolina was moved from Sept. 12 to Sept. 19, 2015.

Tech and OSU will meet next season on Sept. 20 in Columbus, Ohio.

The Hokies hosted Georgia Tech on Labor Day Night last year, beating the Yellow Jackets in overtime to open the season and fell to Boise State in the 2010 Labor Day matchup at FedExField.
