ESPN's College GameDay Comes to Blacksburg
The college hoops version of ESPN's College GameDay will be in Blacksburg this weekend as the Hokies host the No. 1 ranked Duke Blue Devils in a prime time match up.
The game is enormous for Tech (18-8, 8-5) as they once again reside squarely on the "bubble" for the NCAA Tournament.
Duke (26-2, 12-1) has only lost to St. Johns and Florida State this season and sits poised to earn a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament come March.
Tech has played extremely well against the top-ranked team in the nation, compiling a 3-4 all-time record including wins over North Carolina in 2007 and Wake Forest in 2009.
In it's last five games against the No. 1 team The cumulative score reads Virginia Tech 389 No. 1 Team 383.
This is an enormous opportunity for the Hokies and you can expect a raucous crowd in Cassell Coliseum.
The only bad thing will be how many times they'll show former Tech great Dell Curry wearing Duke stuff behind their bench.
