Many fans have been wondering what type of special uniforms the Virginia Tech Hokies would wear for their huge showdown September 10th against the Tennessee Volunteers at the Battle at Bristol. Today, the Hokies revealed their Battle at Bristol with it first being shown off by a top recruit and then publicly released by Virginia Tech.

Virginia Tech football leaked the uniforms on Twitter via four-star DB and Virginia’s top 2017 recruit Devon Hunter before formally releasing pictures, videos, and a press release on the jerseys. The move has gotten plenty of Hokie fans and former players excited including one former star and NFL Pro Bowler.

Kam Chancellor clearly approves of the jerseys while also looking to help convince Devon Hunter, who looks up to Chancellor, to commit to the Hokies in a way that has fans excited about that and Hunter leaking the jerseys.
These uniforms may be the best-looking uniforms since the Hokies played Boise State if not ever as the uniforms look very sharp. The Hokie Stone jerseys are also quite awesome with the black pants and black helmets with a Hokie Stone VT logo creating a looking that should look fantastic under the lights.
The tribute to the original black and gray color scheme of Virginia Tech football along with the salute to the Cadets is also quite unique. Whit Babcock and Nike have done a great job working together to create one of the sharpest looking jerseys over the last few years for a college football team in a unique neutral site game.
To say these Battle at Bristol uniforms are hype and exciting the fan base would be understating it while the Hokies have made a bold recruiting move that I’ve never seen before in letting Virginia’s top 2017 recruit Devon Hunter reveal Virginia Tech’s uniforms for this huge game against Tennessee.
