As you well know by now, the Buckeyes went on the win the National Championship in the first-ever College Football Playoffs, while the Hokies, well, did not.
This season, Ohio State has a chance to get its revenge, meaning Virginia Tech better be ready.
Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Ohio State Buckeyes
Date: Monday, Sept. 7
Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
Venue: Lane Stadium
In last season’s matchup, Virginia Tech had the luxury of going up against J.T. Barrett in just his second game. According to the Associated Press, Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer said after the game, “There are some weaknesses right now on our team and it was rather obvious what (they are). We can play better on both sides.”
Meyer was right, as the team went on to fix those issues and win a national championship. That’s the team that the Hokies are up against in Week 2, so they’d better be ready.
Louisville Cardinals vs. Auburn Tigers
Date: Saturday, Sept. 5
Time: 3:30 p.m. ET
Venue: Georgia Dome
Bobby Petrino has found himself victorious in all 10 of his season-opening contests with the Louisville Cardinals, but this one could be the one to break that trend.
In Week 1 of the 2015-16 NCAA Football season, Louisville travels to a neutral location to take on the what-will-be heavily favored Auburn Tigers. The Cardinals do have a 1-0 record all time against this program, but that hardly matters coming into this contest, as the game was played back in 1974.
