Around The
June 10, 2004

The Duke-Virginia Tech football game scheduled for September 18 in Blacksburg is set for a 12 noon kickoff and the contest will be televised live by Jefferson Pilot/Raycom.

The game will mark the first-ever ACC tilt for Virginia Tech, who is coming off last year's 8-5 season that included a trip to the Insight Bowl where the Hokies fell to California, 52-49.

The Blue Devils lead the all-time series over Virginia Tech by a 7-4 margin, but the two teams have not met since a 27-0 Hokie victory in 1984.

Tech is scheduled to open its 2004 football season against the University of Southern California in the BCA Football Classic at FedEx Field on Aug. 28 in Landover, Md.
