BLACKSBURG – Bud Foster will be coaching in his final game at Lane Stadium when Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh square off a 3:30 p.m., and fittingly, the retiring defensive coordinator gave pretty much a consensus preview of what the game will be.

“As good as we played this last week, it’s going to be a different game and a different mindset,” he said. “It’s going to be a physical football game. Pittsburgh is big and physical on both sides of the ball, and we’re going to have to get ready for a 60-minute fistfight, so to speak.”

The Panthers and Hokies will be squaring off in a game with pivotal Coastal Division implications. Both teams remain in the hunt for the division crown, and both enter the game with identical overall records (7-3) and conference marks (4-2).

Pregame begins at 2:00 PM on 103.3 FM WESR.
