NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — As Virginia Tech prepares for the Battle at Bristol, many are hoping to bring back a victory for Virginia.

Hokies Head Coach Justin Fuente knows he has some big shoes to fill.

Fuente, who spent the previous four seasons at Memphis, took over in January for Frank Beamer, who retired after 29 years as Virginia Tech’s head coach.

It’s tough to shake those game-day jitters but the Hokies are looking for balance in the bright lights at Bristol.

The Hokies will head to Bristol Friday and conduct a walk through at the speedway before kicking things off Saturday night.

News 2 will broadcast the Battle at Bristol game Saturday, Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. CST. Click here for full coverage of the Battle at Bristol.
