College Sports

BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Virginia Tech accepted an invite to the Pinstripe Bowl and will face the Maryland Terrapins on Dec. 29 at New York’s Yankee Stadium.

The Hokies finished the regular season with a 6-6 record and earned bowl eligibility following their win over rival Virginia in the Commonwealth Clash.

Interim head coach J.C. Price will remain in that role for the bowl game as the program transitions to new leadership under recently hired Brent Pry, who takes over next season. Pry indicated that Price will remain on the Virginia Tech coaching staff as an associate head coach.

Virginia Tech has a long history of competing in bowl games, playing in 27 consecutive postseason contests from 1993 to 2019. This also marks the 34th time the Hokies will compete in a bowl game. The Hokies opted not to play in a bowl game last season, citing concerns with the coronavirus pandemic.

This matchup renews a series dating back to 1919. The former ACC foes are scheduled for a four-game future home-and-home series with Virginia Tech slated to host home games in 2027 and 2029, while Maryland will host the Hokies in 2026 and 2028.

The Pinstripe Bowl will air on ESPN at 2:15 p.m. on Dec. 29.
