Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Commonwealth Cup

Rival Team: Virginia Cavaliers

The Commonwealth Cup is awarded each year to the winner of the Virginia Tech vs. Virginia football game. The teams first met in 1895 when the Cavaliers shutout the Hokies 38-0. However, since then the Hokies have made up for that defeat taking a 54-37-5 advantage in the rivalry, while also winning the last 11 meetings. The Hokies hope to keep this trend going in the coming seasons.

Virginia Tech vs Miami

Rival Team: Miami Hurricanes

The Hokies and Hurricanes rivalry is unique in that these conference rivals have met in a bowl game not once but twice having faced each other in the 1966 Liberty Bowl as well as the 1980 Peach Bowl. The rivalry was one-sided up until 1995 when the Hokies beat the Hurricanes for the first time. Since then the Hokies have gotten the better of their rivals winning 13 of the last 20 meetings.
