The first home game of the year also doubles as a night game. The Buckeyes host the Hokies in a prime time showdown.

Ohio State fans have been waiting all week long and the time has arrived. The Buckeyes are back at home for the first time in the 2014 season as they prepare to host Frank Beamer and Virginia Tech. The prime time clash is also the first night game of the season and everyone knows how intense night games at the 'Shoe are.

Virginia Tech comes in unranked, but still a more than formidable opponent for the Buckeyes as the Hokies boast one of the tougher secondaries in college football. Young redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett will get his second start of his career, as well as his first start at home. Barrett will be tested tonight, but that's a part of growing up at the college level. He'll have the home crowd to rally behind him and a bevy of talent surrounding him, including Dontre Wilson and Ezekiel Elliott to help him pull out a win over Virginia Tech.
