BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente says he takes the impact of the coronavirus pandemic personally and that he supported team medical experts who say it was the “exact right call” to postpone the Hokies game against Virginia.

The Hokies pulled out of their season-opener against Virginia because of a COVID-19 outbreak within the Virginia Tech football team that made team doctors suggest “it wasn’t even close” if the team could play.
