KNOXVILLE, Tn. — I made the three-hour trek from Blacksburg, Va and Virginia Tech to arrive at historic Neyland Stadium just in time for a major thunderstorm to move through campus.
Shortly after the national anthem, the Tennessee band was moved into a nearby tunnel and fans were asked to take cover. In a nearby parking structure, tailgating tents were being blown around by heavy winds and lightning strikes were flashing throughout the stadium area.
Heavy rain also
BLACKSBURG, Va. — You have to wonder what is going on at one of the country's most renown technological colleges when the wireless Internet runs at a slower speed than dial-up.
Such is the problem at Virginia Tech on the opening Saturday of the college football season as the FCS-No. 13-ranked Hokies take on the No. 2 ranked team in FCS, Appalachian State.

That same night, Delaware got off to its chase for a national championship at home against Division II West Chester, winning 31-0.
Eastern Washington dropped a 29-24 decision a couple of days later at Nevada in another FBS game.
Delaware and Eastern Washington have survived plenty
NEWARK, De. — The question on everyone from Georgia Southern's on Saturday was the weather forecast for the Eagles' NCAA Division I Football Championship semifinal game with Delaware.
Two days ago, this region received snow and temperatures have hovered in the 20s for much of the week. Not exactly the kind of forecast for a team like GSU that runs the triple option.
But as we head towards the noon kickoff here, the temperatures have warmed from 28 an hour ago to 33 on this
