Marshall and Virginia Tech have agreed to a possible football game on Saturday, Dec. 1 in Blacksburg, Va.

Both Marshall (7-3) and Virginia Tech (4-6) had their Sept. 15 games cancelled due to Hurricane Florence.

As part of the agreement, the game will only be played if the Hokies defeat Virginia Friday, which would leave Virginia Tech one game short of being bowl eligible.

If Virginia Tech loses to Virginia, the game between the Herd and Hokies will not be played.

Virginia Tech leads the all-time series with Marshall 10-2. The last time the team met was in 2013 when the Hokies won 29-21 in triple overtime.

Marshall's last win over Virginia Tech was in 1940.
