The Hokies would now be scheduled to open their season on Sept. 19 against in-state rival Virginia.
The Cavaliers had been scheduled to face VMI in a Sept. 11 season opener with VMI, but that game was canceled when VMI shuttered its 2020 fall season in line with a decision from the Southern Conference.
