Brent Pry, Virginia Tech Football Announce ‘White Effect’ Game

Virginia Tech’s gotten really bold since its home-and-home series with Penn State was canceled.

Virginia Tech football introduced its White Out White Effect spirit game in a press release on Tuesday. Though the release is light on details, the Hokies’ graphic might look remarkably familiar to those in Happy Valley.

Virginia Tech has hosted White Effect games in the past, and this year it’s encouraging fans to wear white to Lane Stadium on Saturday, September 30.

Ironically, Pitt will be Virginia Tech’s opponent during the “White Effect.” Despite playing 100 games against Penn State, the Panthers have never had to face White Out conditions.

Of course, they still won’t. They’ll be facing whatever a White Effect is. But, it’s certainly similar nonetheless.

This isn’t the first time Virginia Tech has plundered from Penn State. After spending six seasons with the Nittany Lions, former defensive coordinator Brent Pry was hired by the Hokies to be their new head coach.

In his inaugural campaign with the Hokies, Pry only mustered a 3-8 record, though, the program was widely recognized as needing a rebuild when he took over in 2021.
