The Virginia Tech football team will open the season on the road against Vanderbilt on Saturday, Aug. 31.
The following week, Hokie Nation will be jumping again inside Lane Stadium, with Marshall coming to Blacksburg on Saturday, Sept. 7
Virginia Tech football’s full 2024 schedule was officially announced during ACC Network’s Schedule Release Show on Wednesday. Each matchup is finalized for the Hokies’ 12-game slate, including exciting matchups against nationally-ranked Clemson and in-state rival Virginia, as well as the electric Thursday night atmosphere of Lane Stadium.
Entering his third season at the helm, Brent Pry returns the majority of his offensive playmakers, alongside quarterback Kyron Drones, and numerous starters on defense, which finished fourth nationally and first in the ACC in fewest passing yards allowed. Tech has a great opportunity ahead to build upon its 2023 season, ending the season by winning five of its last seven games, which ended in a Military Bowl victory.
A Big Ten opponent will make its way to Blacksburg for the second straight season with Rutgers facing Tech on Sept. 21, and two ACC programs in Clemson (Nov. 9) and Georgia Tech (Oct. 26) will find themselves competing on Worsham Field.
The Hokies will play on Thursday night for the third consecutive season as they host Boston College on Oct. 17. They will also play during Friday Night Lights when they travel to South Florida for a matchup with the Miami Hurricanes in late September, beginning conference play.
A small change from recent seasons, the Hokies will enjoy two open dates, one in mid-October and the other in mid-November.
With five conference games in November, Pry and staff will face off against two new head coaches in the ACC. Pry and the Hokies will travel to Syracuse on Saturday, Nov. 2, for a meeting with the Orange and head coach Fran Brown. Three weeks later, they hit the road again in a matchup against Duke and new head coach Manny Diaz.
Tech will travel to the west coast and face Stanford on Saturday, Oct. 5, in what will be the inaugural season in the ACC for the Cardinal.
To wrap up the season, the Hokies will host the Smithfield Commonwealth Clash against Virginia on Saturday, Nov. 30 for the first time since 2020.
Kick times for the first three games of the season will be announced at a later date.
