Virginia Tech fans who made the trip to Tallahassee, Florida, for the Hokies’ season opener against No. 19 Florida State on Monday seem to be happy with that decision — and they let the rest of the country know it.

No. 20 Virginia Tech dominated the Seminoles 24-3 on Monday night, spoiling Florida State coach Willie Taggart’s debut.

The Hokies took control of the game from the start, mounting a 75-yard touchdown drive on the opening series, and cruised to a 17-3 halftime lead.

It even got so bad at one point that Virginia Tech fans who made the trip started a massive Tomahawk Chop chant — mimicking the iconic Florida State cheer — inside Doak Campbell Stadium.

Later on in the fourth quarter, Virginia Tech players even got in on the action.


While it’s certainly early in the college football season, the Hokies and their fans seem to have claimed Doak Campbell Stadium as their own on Monday night. And after all, if you beat the Seminoles at home, you get to Chop.
