Feunte relieved to have teams connected to dates


BLACKSBURG, Va. (WJHL) – Virginia Tech found out who they’ll be squaring off with this season as the conference released its revised schedules for its member schools on Thursday.

Football squads in the ACC will play 10 conference games, along with one non-conference foe that must be from the same state. Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente said some structure in this time of unknown is great to see.

“Who ever it is to know there is a plan and to have some structure because these kids and coaches both become creatures of habit and structure and to say we have not had that would be an understatement,” Fuente said.

The Hokies head man also mentioned that his squad has showed an uptick in intensity.

“I sense a little more energy and I don’t know if relieve is the right word excitement or lower anxiety level or just the fact we actually knew there was a name on the schedule and not just a date to me that was the biggest thing,” Fuente said.

The Hokies schedule is as followed:

September 12    NC STATE
September 19    VIRGINIA
September 26     Open
October 3           at Duke
October 10         at North Carolina
October 17        BOSTON COLLEGE
