The date of the game has not yet been announced. It will be released when the ACC schedule comes out in late-January/early-February.
Tech previously had games scheduled with East Carolina in 2012 and ’13, but they were moved back to 2016 and ’17 so the Hokies could open the 2013 season against Alabama in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff in Atlanta.
Virginia Tech has never played Austin Peay in football. The Governors, a team from the Football Championship Subdivision, went 3-8 this season, finishing second to last in the Ohio Valley Conference.
The rest of the Hokies’ non-conference schedule in 2012 includes Pittsburgh on the road (Sept. 15), Bowling Green at home (Sept. 22) and Cincinnati at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. (TBA).
Virginia Tech’s ACC schedule includes home games against Duke, Georgia Tech, Virginia and Florida State and road games against Miami, North Carolina, Boston College and Clemson.
