BLACKSBURG - The Virginia Tech athletics department announced Sunday that it has accepted a bid to play in the 15th Insight Bowl on Dec. 26 in Phoenix, Ariz. The Hokies will face a Pac 10 team to be determined at Bank One Ballpark. Kick off is set for 8:30 p.m. (EST), 6:30 p.m. (MST) and the game will be shown on ESPN.

"I've known John Junker and the people at the Insight Bowl for a long time," said head coach Frank Beamer. "We look forward to going out there and we are thankful we have an opportunity to play in their bowl game this year. That's the great thing about bowl games in that you play teams from other conferences. This is the first time we've ever played a team from the Pac 10 and we look forward to that challenge."

Ticket information and further details will be available early this week.

Tech finished its regular season 8-4 and this will be its 11th consecutive bowl appearance. This will be the first game for the Hokies played in the state of Arizona.
