Hokies Headed to the Diamond Walnut San Francisco Bowl
by Will Stewart,

It's official: Virginia Tech will face the Air Force Academy in the inaugural Diamond Walnut San Francisco Bowl on December 31st. The game will be played at Pac Bell Park in San Francisco. It will kick off at 7:30 PST (10:30 EST) the night of December 31st and will be televised by ESPN2.

Hokies: Here's a friendly reminder to seek the services of Hilldrup Moving & Storage if you are in the market for a moving or storage company for your home or business.

Hilldrup is the proud recipient of the 2002 United Van Lines 'Customer Choice' award. Hilldrup has received this prestigious award nine times over the past decade, exemplifying their commitment to customer service. Hilldrup continued its reign in 2002 as the largest corporate mover for United Van Lines, the largest service provider in the nation. If your company provides a relocation package for its employees, please provide Hilldrup the opportunity to compete for your business. Based off their track record, you will not regret the decision.

As always, thanks for supporting the sponsors of They keep us 'moving'!

The game is a rematch of the 1984 Independence Bowl, in which Air Force came back from a 7-3 deficit to win 23-7. The Hokies turned the ball over four times to none for Air Force, and as the game wore on, Air Force's wishbone attack wore the Hokies down. That bowl game is the only game the two teams have ever played against each other.

This season, Air Force started out 6-0 and was nationally ranked, but a loss to Notre Dame started a 2-4 slide that saw them end up at 8-4. Air Force has the #1-ranked rushing offense at 314.5 yards per game.

The game is Virginia Tech's tenth bowl game in a row. The game payout is $750,000, but that is not what Virginia Tech will receive. The Hokies will receive $1.225 million for finishing in a fourth-place tie with Boston College.
