September 7, 2016
Virginia Tech football head coach Justin Fuente coached his first game in Lane Stadium on Saturday. In the season opener Virginia Tech beat Liberty University 36-13, handing Fuente his first victory.
Fuente, who spent the previous four seasons at the University of Memphis, took over in January for Frank Beamer, who retired after 29 years as Virginia Tech’s head coach.
“The atmosphere here is fantastic," Fuente said. "It’s what college football is all about. People at Virginia Tech take a lot of pride in the game-day atmosphere, and they should. It was incredible."
Here's a look at his first game.
