It wasn’t that long ago that Virginia Tech was throwing shade at NC State for having to postpone their season opener against the Hokies due to Covid-19 complications. Then irony hit, and the Hokies faced a Covid-19 cluster of their own, and had to postpone their game against in-state rival Virginia.
At Justin Fuente’s weekly press conference today, the Virginia Tech head coach said that they wouldn’t be working with a “full roster” this weekend, and then stated…”I hope we’re able to play.”

I read Justin Fuente’s quote about his roster situation and hoping to be able play this weekend vs State. Even more worrying to watch him say the words. pic.twitter.com/q227mUHsBK

Whether or not the Wolfpack and the Hokies play on Saturday night is still up in the air as of today. This is a situation that we will have to monitor all week long.
