Virginia Tech Football Vs. Alabama? Potential 2013 Chick-Fil-A Game Matchup

Sounds like Tech might play the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2013 Chick-fil-A Game. Oh, no, not our Tech, thank goodness -- the Virginia Tech Hokies. Though the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are looking into playing in one of the 2013 games, with the USC Trojans being the most recently rumored opponent, the other Tech is considering a rematch with Bama for the '13 main event, according to athletic director Jim Weaver, who says he was approached by Gary Stokan himself.

Talk about a Tech convention!

Virginia Tech proved itself as an Atlanta draw in 2009, when Hokies fans traveled well to a close loss against the eventual champion Tide to open the season, an upset loss at Bobby Dodd Stadium and an eventual victory over Tennessee in the Chick-fil-A Bowl that ran Lane Kiffin out of the Southeast.  

Bama's already locked in for the 2013 and 2014 weekends -- if you want to pair SEC and ACC teams in at least one game per year, it might not be possible to top Tide-Hokies.
