Georgia Southern at Virginia Tech Date 12/15/2012 2:00:00 PMLive StatsLinkTV ESPN3 Team StatsTeam Stats Embed This Chart On Your WebsiteSimulate This Game Again  The Hokies take on the eagles of georgia southern on Saturday at the Cassell in the second meaningless installment of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic. Why is it meaningless? Because win or lose, the Hokies advance to the semi-finals on Saturday, Dec. 22, in Vegas, baby. While the eagles will keep playing consolation games. Either way, don’t worry, Tech will win this game (or I’ll donate money to some ‘save the eagles’ fund). georgia southern is better known for the football program, and with good reason. While they stink in basketball, they have captured six NCAA I-AA (FCS) Championships since starting their program in 1982. Our old buddy Paul “chop block” Johnson won back-to-back titles there in ’99 and ’00. And the eagles knocked off odu on the road last weekend to advance to the I-AA semi-finals last week (don’t expect eagle fans to have a lot of interest in this game).
