Jake SilverSocial Media StaffSeptember 23, 2013

The Virginia Tech Hokies will take on the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Thursday night at 7:30 PM ET. They'll be doing so in style.

As we've previously covered, the unique helmets mimic "Hokie Stone," a type of limestone found exclusively in Blacksburg, Virginia, which covers many of the buildings on the Virginia Tech campus.
