Virginia Tech Athletics have confirmed that East Carolina University has indicated to Tech Athletics officials that it will not travel to Blacksburg for Saturday’s scheduled football game due to the impending impact of Hurricane Florence.
Tech officials had planned on waiting until Wednesday before making a determination on the status of Saturday’s game in hopes that the contest could still be safely played as scheduled once more definitive information on the storm’s projected track and anticipated impact on Southwest Virginia became available.
No decisions regarding the status of other Virginia Tech Athletics home events scheduled for this weekend have been made at this time.
More details for fans holding tickets to Saturday’s football game against East Carolina will be made available once further information is available on whether the game could potentially be rescheduled. As soon as those details are finalized, it will be communicated with all impacted parties.
