The fear of flying since September 11th has drawn a record number of people traveling to Virginia by CAR.
Attractions easy to reach by Interstate 95, such as Virginia Beach and Historic Jamestown, have seen a steady stream of visitors since the first of the year.

Tech trainer Mike Goforth says for the past three weeks, Noel has experienced a clicking in the lateral side of the knee. Noel is listed as probable, as the backup quarterback for the Marshall game. If not, Will Hunt shifts into the back-up role. And the Tech coaches then have to start thinking long and hard about using Marcus Vick.
