Virginia Tech kicked off the 2023 season in style on Saturday night.

As is tradition in Blacksburg, the Hokies took the field to “Enter Sandman” at Lane Stadium. The always-imposing crowd made it a moment to remember.

Here’s a clip from the broadcast:

The ‘Enter Sandman’ tradition has turned Lane Stadium into one of college football’s best atmospheres.

Virginia Tech is hoping to get off to a 1-0 start this season with a win over Old Dominion on Saturday. The Hokies lost to the Monarchs on the road last season in Brent Pry’s first year at the helm.

Grant Wells won Virginia Tech’s quarterback competition over Baylor transfer Kyron Drones in fall camp. Wells also started for the Hokies in 2022.

Virginia Tech has reached bowl eligibility just once in the last 3 seasons. The Hokies went 3-8 last season and won just 1 game in ACC play.

The Hokies are 2-2 all-time against Old Dominion.
