The Virginia Tech Athletics Department announced today that it will honor and remember victims of the national tragedies on September 11 during a pre-game ceremony at its football game this Saturday against the University of Central Florida. Members of both teams will join The Marching Virginians, The Highty-Tighties and the Corps of Cadets on the field for a pre-game ceremony. The ceremony will involve a 21-gun salute, a moment of reflection, the playing of "taps", followed by the singing of the national anthem.
