I really dislike Virginia Tech, but Enter Sandman is so unbelievably awesome.
1,000 times better than Clemson’s stupid hill.

Shoutout to ESPN for showing the full Virginia Tech entrance on the broadcast.
If this atmosphere in Blacksburg doesn’t hype you up for football, I don’t know what will.

Good on you @espn for showing the full Virginia Tech entrance.

Virginia Tech would rank very highly on the list of best venues for a Thursday night game. Just something about the vibe there – they get hyped for Thursdays.

Virginia Tech could lose every game for the rest of time and Enter Sandman will always be insanely awesome.

Virginia Tech is a small underdog at home to West Virginia on Thursday night. The Mountaineers have a high-powered offense, but the Hokies’ defense has been solid so far this season.
This is just the third matchup between these 2 former conference rivals since 2005. They split the previous 2 meetings. Virginia Tech won on a neutral field in 2017 and WVU won in Morgantown last season.
