ESPN’s College GameDay coming to Blacksburg for Virginia Tech-Clemson | Football

For the first time in a decade, ESPN’s College GameDay is coming to Blacksburg.

The network officially announced what’s been assumed all week, that the traveling Saturday show will set up in Blacksburg for a matchup between No. 2 Clemson and No. 13 Virginia Tech on Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Both teams are 4-0. The Hokies beat Old Dominion 38-0 on Saturday while the Tigers beat Boston College 34-7.

It’ll be a rematch of last year’s ACC title game in Orlando, where Virginia Tech gave eventual national champion Clemson a run for its money in a 42-35 loss.

It’ll be the full GameDay crew’s first trip to Blacksburg since the 2007 opener against East Carolina, although that day — Virginia Tech’s first football game after the tragedy the previous April — had a much more somber mood.

This is GameDay’s 11th time doing a Virginia Tech game. The Hokies are 4-6 in previous games the show has done. Tech is 4-1 in home games, however.

The show’s most recent Virginia Tech game was last year’s Battle at Bristol against Tennessee.

Here’s a history of all of Virginia Tech’s appearances on GameDay. Lee Corso is 10-0 when making picks when the Hokies are involved with the show.
