As electric as the atmosphere in Lane Stadium has been over the last two weeks, there’s no doubt it will ratchet up a few more notches this Thursday night, Sept. 22, when Virginia Tech Football welcomes long-time rival West Virginia back to Blacksburg for the first time since 2004.
Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET., and parking lots around Lane Stadium will open at 3 p.m. that afternoon.
Tickets for this highly-anticipated matchup sold out back in August. Fans still looking for tickets to Thursday’s contest are encouraged to visit StubHub, the official secondary ticket marketplace of Virginia Tech Athletics.
What makes this game even more notable is the return of the Hokie Effect theme that asks those in attendance to wear either orange or maroon depending on their seat location. Instead of a stripe like years past, this season’s Hokie Effect will see the North half of Lane Stadium turn orange while the South half is covered in maroon.
Find out what color you need to wear and get the corresponding T-shirt through this partnership with Virginia Tech’s Undergraduate Student Senate.
Fans attending Thursday’s game are encouraged to enter Lane Stadium and find their seats early in order to not miss a minute of the pregame festivities, including skydivers and the iconic “Enter Sandman” team entrance. There will also be a throwback feel to Thursday’s matchup as videoboard content and other in-game elements will harken back to the mid-1990s when this rivalry was at its peak.
