When Football meets NASCAR
#deriklattig

Derik Lattig says if you haven't heard, football will be played at a NASCAR venue on Saturday. With at least 150,000 fans expected to see Virginia Tech take on Tennessee (8 p.m. ET, ABC), the Hokies weren't going to pass up an opportunity to flash a new uniform.
Virginia Tech and Nike unveiled their "Hokie Stone" collaboration late last month, a black-gray-black outfit that "pays homage to several elements of Tech’s iconic history" including "Tech’s most distinctive architectural feature" and its Corps of Cadets.
In any other week, a service academy team wearing shark helmets that call back to World War II pilots would be all the uniform world was talking about. But while Air Force won't have a six-figure attendance turnout in prime time, the Falcons' "AIRPOWER Legacy Series Sharktooth helmet" still deserves a long look.
Air Force will pair the helmet with an anthracite jersey and pewter pants against Georgia State at Falcon Stadium on Saturday.
