About Virginia Tech


The Hokies represent The Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, popularly known as Virginia Tech or simply VT. Virginia Tech is a land-grant university based in Blacksburg, Virginia. It was founded in 1872 as a research university, and has several campuses throughout the state of Virginia. In addition, it is one of the few public universities to maintain a corps of cadets.

Lane Stadium

Lane Stadium is relatively small in comparison to other NCAA 1A fields. The stadium is named for the late Edward H. Lane, a graduate of the university and a former member of the Board of Visitors. According to it is “the toughest place in college football for opponents to play.” Even though it’s been in service for over 40 years, it is still one of the best places to watch a football game.

Hokies Highlights


Virginia Tech has been in a couple of conferences in its history. In 1991 they joined the Big East Conference, and went on to win the 1995 Sugar Bowl, then defeated the Florida State Seminoles in the 2000 Sugar Bowl for the national championship that year. They then went on to defeat the Clemson Tigers 41-20 in the 2001 Gator Bowl the following year. 2004 saw the Hokies winning the ACC championship in their first year in the conference but they lost the Sugar Bowl that year to the Auburn Tigers. The Hokies head coach, Frank Beamer, is one of the most successful NCAA coaches with 198 wins following the 2010 season. In 2011, the Hokies made it again to the ACC championship, but lost to the Clemson Tigers. They went on to lose the Sugar bowl to the Michigan Wolverines 23-20 in overtime.
