VT/Texas A&M Game Will Air on WSOC-TV in Charlotte
September 16, 2002

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Virginia Tech's football game at Texas A&M on Saturday, Sept. 21 will now be televised in the Charlotte, N.C., viewing area by WSOC-TV.

The ABC affiliate was originally scheduled to carry the game between Georgia Tech and Brigham Young at 3:30 p.m. However, in order to satisfy the demands of local viewers, ABC Sports approved a proposal for WSOC to air the Virginia Tech/Texas A&M game instead. The Georgia Tech/BYU game will now be broadcast in the Charlotte area on independent station WAXN-TV.

In addition to airing in the Charlotte area, this weekend's matchup between the Hokies and the Aggies is scheduled to be shown in Virginia, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and parts of Kentucky, Ohio, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and New Mexico.
