While Vanity pushes some drivers

Virginia charges 10- bucks for

cheaper than many other states.

mstevens@wdbj7.com The Hokies host Miami this
afternoon - but fans around the state
could really care less. They're mainly
interested in the kickoff time for the
UVA-Tech game that is coming up in two
weeks on Thanksgiving weekend.

GO TO FULL SCREEN UVA/VT GAME TIME GO TO FULL SCREEN


This year's Battle for the
Commonwealth Cup will kickoff at Noon
that Saturday at Scott Stadium and the
game will be televised by one of the
ESPN networks -either the regular ESPN
of ESPN 2.


The UVA-Tech game has never meant
more than it does this season. The
November 24th game is a winner take all
for the Coastal division title and an
invite to the ACC Championship game -
even if the Hokies lose to Miami this


Saturday. END OF BOARD

Last Saturday Taylor came off the bench in the :00 first half and never looked back
completing 10-of 15 passes for 204
yards and two touchdowns as the Hokies
picked up their first win against
Florida State since 1975.


The true freshman also piled up


92 yards on the ground against the
Seminoles, Taylor has now accounted for
a touchdown in all seven games in which
he has played this season.


This was Tyrod's first game since
suffering a high ankle sprain against
Duke - and he says the month of being
on the sideline and watching was
actually a blessing in disguise. Both
Taylor and Sean Glennon will likely
play against this Saturday.

Today was the third day of dark
theaters in New York and no new talks
are scheduled.


Theater workers say they'll keep


picketing until they get what they want
from show producers but say they are
going to the bargaining table with
"constructive" offers.


On the other hand, producers say
the stagehands won't budge on anything.


The walkout began Saturday and
has shut down more than two dozen
theaters.
