SPORTS: The ‘Battle at Bristol’ experience

by Maria Dobbs, Ivan Wang, Karli Gillespie–

The Battle at Bristol on Sept. 10 was a highly anticipated football game. It broke the Guinness world record for the highest attendance at any college football game.

Virginia Tech fans watched the game in different places and had vastly different experiences. Many traveled to Bristol Tennessee while others stayed in hometown Blacksburg and watched the game on TV.

Although the game was watched in different locations the Hokies were high in spirit. With all the different experiences it’s hard to decide which place was the best one to be at. Despite the 24-45 loss it was a memorable Saturday night for everyone.
