Yes, we are only one day away from the return of Thursday Night football to Blacksburg in what is a fairly big ACC Coastal showdown between the Virginia Tech Hokies and Miami Hurricanes. The Hokies will be in primetime for the second straight week but this might be their last game on ESPN for a couple weeks depending on how they play with the Hokies on the ACC Network for the game against Boston College.

Meanwhile, ESPN’s Thursday Night football commentating team of Rece Davis, Jesse Palmer, and David Pollack is now in Blacksburg and are making a few stops today. One of those stops involved touching the Hokie Stone at Lane Stadium.

ESPN’s crew is making plenty of stops around Virginia Tech but this is definitely one that they had to make before tomorrow. Here’s a couple more of their stops today.
