This Super Bowl is a tough one for many NFL fans. Non-Patriots and non-Eagles fans are left to choose between some of their least favorite teams.
Virginia Tech students are no different. For fans of NFC East teams, like the nearby Washington Redskins, choosing between a division rival and the hated New England Patriots is a tough proposition.
Virginia Tech’s campus is fairly divided on the issue of the Super Bowl, as Philadelphia and New England fans obviously have their favorite but fans of neither team would rather the game not be played at all. Many more students simply don’t know about either team or don’t care about NFL football. We spoke to Virginia Tech students outside of Owens Dining Hall to gauge student sentiment toward the upcoming game.
