Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente has the perfect person on staff to give a history lesson about the VT-West Virginia rivalry before their season opener. So he asked defensive coordinator Bud Foster to deliver the message. The two teams last played in 2005, and Foster coached in the last 19 games in the series. "I've always had the utmost respect for West Virginia and that goes back to playing coach (Don) Nehlen," Foster told ESPN.com. "It was always a tough, hard fought football game, a lot of close battles and a lot of great players, too. We have to make sure our kids understand what that is all about."

Frank Beamer and Don Nehlen will serve as honorary captains in the season opener between Virginia Tech and West Virginia at FedEx Field on Sept. 3. Beamer coached the Hokies and Nehlen coached the Mountaineers when the two schools squared off as major rivals in the Big East. Both will participate in the pregame coin toss, and will be involved in the presentation of the Black Diamond Trophy after the game ends.

Virginia Tech and BYU will play a home-and-home series in 2026 and 2030. The Hokies also announced multiple future games with in-state opponents Liberty, Old Dominion and VMI. Most interesting note in the release, though, is this: Earlier this summer, the ACC decided its schools could only play one FCS opponent per season on specifically designated weekends through 2029. Virginia Tech is scheduled to face four FCS opponents – William & Mary (2018), Furman (2019), Richmond (2021) and VMI (2026) over the next 12 seasons.
