Glennon Starts For The Hokies Amidst Downpour

BLACKSBURG, Va - The rains are still coming down as both teams take the field.  Virginia Tech doesn’t think that field conditions will be an issue tonight.  Worsham Field consists of 4,600 4x4 foot trays sodded with Bermuda grass above an asphalt surface.  Irrigation lines and a vacuum surface beneath the field can shuttle away up to 16 inches of water per hour.  The system has been proven in worse conditions, holding up well in the 2003 matchup against Texas A&M during Hurricane Isabel.

Redshirt-junior quarterback Sean Glennon led the Hokies’ first drive of the game, filling in for the injured freshman Tyrod Taylor.  Tech gained fouryards before going three and out.

Glennon started all of 2006 for the Hokies and was the starter at the beginning of this season before being pulled in week two against LSU.

In limited action this season Glennon has completed 48 of 76 passes for 583 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
