“Virginia Tech is a special place and the community is one of the most respectful and passionate we have visited,” said Norby Williamson, executive vice president, production. “Our coverage will be considerate of the emotional day facing the students, faculty, and people of Blacksburg and the country.”
Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech football head coach added, “Every time College GameDay has come to Blacksburg it has been exciting. This time, I think there will be a greater togetherness than ever before.”
The game will be at noon against East Carolina, and Mike Tirico will be with Todd Blackledge and Bill Curry for the call. Another interesting tidbit is that Kirk Herbstreit will head out the door early to call the Tennessee/CAL game that night. AA hopes there are no flight delays because I thoroughly enjoy Herbie when he calls games.
