BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Virginia Tech will open its 2021 football season Friday, Sept. 3 against North Carolina.

The ACC confirmed the season-opening game Monday.

The game against the Tar Heels will mark the first of seven home games at Lane Stadium in 2021. Tech is set to host Pitt, Syracuse, Duke, Notre Dame, Middle Tennessee State and Richmond.

Tech will open the season with North Carolina for the first time since 1946. The Hokies have won their last two home games against North Carolina, including the longest game in ACC history, a six-OT, 43-41 victory in 2019.

Tech will close out its season on Nov. 27 with a Commonwealth Clash game at UVA.
