Virginia Tech game delayed due to coaches being stuck in elevator
It’s Week 1 for everyone, and that includes the elevator operators in Norfolk, Virginia.
The second half of Virginia Tech-Old Dominion was delayed on Friday night because some members of the Hokies’ coaching staff were stuck in an elevator.
The coaches were presumably on their way back up to the press box when the incident occurred.
Here’s the report from ESPN’s broadcast crew:

Virginia Tech is hoping to avenge its 2018 loss to Old Dominion. The Hokies are 0-1 all-time in Norfolk.
Virginia Tech was able to move the ball offensively in the first half, but only scored 7 points because of three turnovers. Grant Wells threw 2 interceptions and the Hokies botched a field goal attempt that ended up resulting in a Old Dominion touchdown.
Old Dominion will receive the ball to start the second half.
