Default ESPN's College Gameday to open at Virginia Tech

ESPN's College GameDay opens with East Carolina at Va. Tech

BRISTOL, Conn. -- ESPN's College GameDay opens its football season in Blacksburg, Va., when East Carolina visits Virginia Tech on Sept. 1.

"Virginia Tech is a special place, and the community is one of the most respectful and passionate we have visited," ESPN vice president Norby Williamson said. "Our coverage will be considerate of the emotional day facing the students, faculty, and people of Blacksburg and the country."

On April 16, 23-year-old student Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people on campus before committing suicide in a classroom building.

"Every time College GameDay has come to Blacksburg it has been exciting," Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer said. "This time, I think there will be a greater togetherness than ever before."
