Tech adds Arkansas State to 2011 non-conference slate
Matchup to be fourth in a series between the two schools

BLACKSBURG, Va. - The Virginia Tech Athletics Department announced Wednesday that it has come to terms with Arkansas State University for one football game to be played in Blacksburg during the 2011 season.

Virginia Tech had an open spot on both its 2010 and 2011 schedule and last week, it announced a game against Boise State University for Oct. 2, 2010 at FedEx Field, home of the Washington Redskins. This game against Arkansas State will complete the 2011 non-conference schedule.

Tech and Arkansas State have played three other times, in 1994, 1997 and 2002, all won by the Hokies in Blacksburg.
