Virginia Tech heading to Insight Bowl

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Virginia Tech accepted a bid Sunday to
play in the Insight Bowl, the Hokies' 11th consecutive bowl
appearance.

The Hokies (8-4) will play a Pac-10 team to be determined in the
Dec. 26 game in Phoenix. Virginia Tech has never played a game in
Arizona.

The Hokies, ranked as high as No. 3 after a 6-0 start, lost four
of their last six games -- including a 35-21 loss at Virginia on
Saturday -- to drop out of the top 25 for the first time in the last
85 weeks of the AP poll.
