Virginia Tech Old Dominion

Just when you thought you saw it all in college football, something comes up that just astonishes everybody.

The second half kickoff of the Virginia Tech HokiesOld Dominion Monarchs game was briefly delayed because some Virginia Tech coaches were stuck in an elevator. You heard me right, as the coaches were heading up to the press box to monitor things and coach from high above, they were stuck in the elevator on the way to their destination. It’s a highly unusual reason for a football game to be delayed but one that makes complete sense.

The game resumed a few minutes later but it was certainly an amusing situation that got people talking.

The game has been nonstop action even with the elevator delay. Virginia Tech botched a field goal snap and Old Dominion scooped up the ball and returned for a touchdown. After three quarters, it’s 17-10 Virginia Tech.
