Source: Vols, Hokies to Play at Bristol in 2016

Posted:

(AP)-- A person with knowledge of the plans tells The Associated Press that Tennessee and Virginia Tech will play a football game at Bristol Motor Speedway in September 2016.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement is still in the works.

The Bristol Motor Speedway Commission announced plans for a news conference Monday for what it called a major announcement, but gave no details.

The speedway holds 150,000. The attendance record for college football is 115,109, set last month at Michigan Stadium for the Michigan-Notre Dame game.

A Tennessee spokesman says the school could not comment.
