Tailgating with Virginia is for LoversĀ®

by Casey | Posted on August 5th, 2010

Okay, okay, it’s a little early, but I just can’t stand the wait any longer! It’s almost FOOTBALL season!!

Liberty University - Williams Stadium

If you’re ready for SaturdayĀ pigskin match-upsĀ like I am, I’ve got theĀ scoop on great college football in Virginia to share with you, not to mention some Virginia is for LoversĀ® items to spruce up your tailgating.

FromĀ the Virginia Tech Hokies and the UVA Cavaliers, two of the ACC’s powerhouses,Ā to the Liberty Flames, the Big South Conference champions three years’ running, there’s plenty of great football action to witness in Virginia this fall.

Tune in to see if the Hampden-Sydney Tigers can seal the deal with another perfect season, andĀ if a slew of new coaches willĀ bring the heat toĀ teams like the Richmond Spiders, UVA, and the Washington and Lee Generals.Ā
