Va. Tech students get free entry to Clemson game

Snow is piling up in Blacksburg, but Virginia Tech's meeting with Clemson on Saturday is still on. And for Virginia Tech students, it will be free.

All students presenting a valid student identification card will receive free admission to the game as a result of the winter weather battering the region. Those students will be placed into the student section first and then be allowed to take seats in the reserved ticket section. If a student occupies a seat of a season ticket holder, the student will be asked to move to an unoccupied seat.

It is the second time this season Virginia Tech has granted free admission as a result of poor winter weather. On Dec. 19, Cassell Coliseum was open to anyone who could make it to the Hokies' game against Charleston Southern. About 3,500 brave fans showed up to see Virginia Tech's 73-50 win.

Also, on Jan. 21 2007, Virginia Tech allowed free entry to students for the Hokies' meeting that night with Maryland after an ice storm pummeled Blacksburg. Virginia Tech defeated Maryland in overtime before a crowd of students that was so loud it is still recalled by reporters and fans.
