Game to be broadcast nationally by ESPN
BLACKSBURG - Virginia Tech and Ohio State have agreed to move the return game of their football home-and-home series in 2015 to Labor Day Monday night, Sept. 7, the two schools announced Wednesday. The game will be televised nationally by ESPN as part of its agreement with the Atlantic Coast Conference and will be played at Lane Stadium. The game was originally scheduled for Sept. 26 of that same year.
In making that move, two other games were moved: Tech’s home game against Furman has moved from Sept. 19 to Sept. 12, 2015 and Tech’s game at East Carolina was moved from Sept. 12 to Sept. 19, 2015.
