After two home games to begin the 2023 season, the Virginia Tech football team hits the road for the first time with the first of two straight away from Blacksburg. Saturday, they head up to New Jersey for a non-conference game with Rutgers.
The first game of the season against Old Dominion at Lane Stadium was on the ACC Network and they did a good job of having their pre and postgame crews on site. They broke down the win and got coach Brent Pry following the game on their set live, as well as wide receiver Ali Jennings.
Last week against Purdue, the game was televised on ESPN2. Well, it started there, and because of two weather delays, the game ended up on ACCExtra and ESPNU. The game was delayed at the start by 21 minutes, then with 5:50 remaining in the first quarter, they went into a second delay that lasted over five hours after torrential rains in the area.
Who is calling the Virginia Tech this Saturday on TV?
This week, the game will be on the Big Ten network since it’s a road game at a conference foe. Joe Beninati will be on play-by-play alongside analyst Adam Breneman with Rutgers alumna Taryn Hatcher on the sidelines.
Beninati is one of the best in the business calling games. He does the play-by-play for the NHL Washington Capitals for NBC Sports Washington, as well as his Big Ten duties. He is one of the best in the NHL calling games and is always worth a listen when you can. He also does a nice job with college football for the Big Ten Network.
Breneman is one of the top Big Ten Network announces while Hatcher is a sideline reporter for NBC Sports Philadelphia where she does a good job regardless of the team she’s covering. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
