REPORT: Tide may play Va. Tech

BOL reporting negotiations are underway for a 2009 game between Alabama and Va. Tech.

Virginia Tech will open the 2009 season against a Southeastern Conference foe in the Georgia Dome, possibly against Alabama, according to Hokies athletic director Jim Weaver.

“We both thought we should do it, without a doubt,” Weaver told the Virginian-Pilot, referring to himself and Hokies coach Frank Beamer.

The BOL report also cites the interest of the Atlanta Sports Council to host an annual season-opening game in the Georgia Dome featuring an ACC or SEC team.
