Blacksburg - Virginia Tech Coach Frank Beamer said he was pleased overall with Wednesday night's scrimmage, one the Hokies can learn from and get better.
Tech has one more closed scrimmage Saturday.
Then a week from Saturday, the Hokies open against top-ranked Alabama in Atlanta. Bud Foster calls it a measuring stick for the Hokies.
Bud Foster, HOKIES DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR, said "You know this game, yea, it can do really big things for our program but it's not going to make or break our season. But it is, it's a tremendous challenge, but at the same time it's a tremendous opportunity. So we're looking forward to it."
