Virginia Tech-East Carolina: Week Long Coverage


Greenville, NC - The Hokies play their first true road game of the season this Saturday at East Carolina.

Tech's Logan Thomas needs just eight completions to pass Tyrod Taylor as the all-time leader in completions at Tech.  Pirates quarterback Shane Carden has completed 80 percent of his passes the first two games, throwing 7 TD's and NO interceptions.

Bud Foster's defense hopes to wreck those impressive numbers this Saturday.

Ruffin McNeill, 4TH-YEAR ECU HEAD COACH, said "Bud is always a challenge.  He's a good football coach, he's a good person but he's a really good football coach and he's been proven.  So I'm looking forward to our team versus their team and their team versus our team more."

Jack Tyler, HOKIES R-SENIOR LINEBACKER, said "Quite frankly, this is probably their Super Bowl.  This is I mean a big game for them, I'm sure they have Virginia Tech circled, this is one of their rivalry games.  You know it's gonna be a good atmosphere, it was a couple of years ago when we went down there."
