Week 1 of the 2018 college football season wraps up on Labor Day with a top 20 clash in the ACC. The No. 20 Virginia Tech Hokies make the trip to Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee for a meeting with the No. 19 Florida State Seminoles.
Virginia Tech looks to improve off of last year’s 9-4 run with 12 returning starters — seven on offense and five on defense — including starting quarterback Josh Jackson, who shined throughout his freshman campaign.
Florida State, meanwhile, is preparing for a new era under the direction of new head coach Willie Taggart, who replaces longtime head coach Jimbo Fisher on the sidelines. Taggart takes over a Seminoles program that was a disappointing 7-6 a season ago and he is ready to hit the ground running.
“We’ve spent a lot of time looking forward to this,” Taggart said, via ESPN.com. “Game week from this point on is all gas and no brakes, and really excited about watching our guys go out and perform Monday night.
“It means a lot to be able to lead this program and to be able to try to stand on the shoulders of those guys (Bobby Bowden and Jimbo Fisher) that came before me and did a great job here. Says a lot about this program (that I’m only their third head coach since 1976. Says those guys before me won a lot. Got to go out and win a lot of ballgames if I want to be a part of those two.”
