B is for Blacksburg

by Desi Sowers

 

Bowl You Over!

B is for Blacksburg Virginia and for "bowl you over." This picturesque small town home of Virginia Tech University is known for academic accomplishments and bowl games. Since 1993, the Virginia Tech Hokies have played in 18 successive bowl games!  That is a record that would bowl anyone over! Last year we competed in the Orange Bowl and in 2012 we headed for New Orleans.

This January in a real bite-your- nails thriller, the University of Michigan narrowly defeated the Hokies as the Allstate Sugar Bowl Game that went into overtime.  Congratulations to the Hokies for a remarkable season!  We are proud to be the home of the Virginia Tech Hokies! To watch highlights of the Sugar Bowl go to http://www.hokiesports.com/football/#
