Thanksgiving Day is spent with family and football. This season, Virginia Tech fans can add basketball to their feast of events that day after the second NFL game that they will have a lot of interest in.
For Hokies fans, the TV clicker will be working overtime on Thanksgiving Day as there is no shortage of sports action that Virginia Tech will have an interest in.
Virginia Tech fans have plenty to choose from on TV
There is no shortage of sports on TV that is available to Hokies’ fans in the afternoon and at night. Of course, it starts with the 12:30 NFL game from Detroit with the Lions hosting divisional foe, the Green Bay Packers. Following the game, and dinner, Virginia Tech will have a rooting interest in the 4:30 NFL game as the Washington Commanders, with multiple ex-Hokies’ on their roster, will play the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas.
Cornerback Kendall Fuller, tight end Logan Thomas, and placekicker Joey Slye will be looking to help the Commanders take down the Cowboys. If you want more sports, the Virginia Tech men’s basketball team has you covered.
After some pie, Hokies fans can sit back and watch the Hokies’ men’s basketball team in Orlando, Florida in the opening game of the ESPN Events Invitational, a four-day, eight-team tournament that is going to be a very big measuring stick for head coach Mike Young and his team.
Virginia Tech opens with Boise State at 8 p.m. Friday (either ESPN2 or ESPNU), then they will play either Iowa State or VCU, before playing either Penn State, Texas A&M, Butler, or a very talented Florida Atlantic team that went to the Final Four last season.
If football is your choice for Thanksgiving night, then the NFL has you covered Thanksgiving night when the San Francisco 49ers travel to play the Seattle Seahawks in an NFC West showdown. Do you want some college football? Then ESPN at 7:30 has the Egg Bowl when Mississippi travels to face in-state rival Mississippi State.
Regardless of your preferred choice, this Thanksgiving, Virginia Tech fans have no shortage of sports on TV to choose from.
