Hokies know better than to overlook ECU


BLACKSBURG, Va. (WSET) - East Carolina coach Scottie Montgomery says quarterback Thomas Sirk is in the concussion protocol but if healthy is likely to start this week against 16th-ranked Virginia Tech.

Sirk is the graduate transfer from Duke.

The Pirates come into Saturday winless, but coach Justin Fuente says ECU is a dangerous team.

Justin Fuente, VIRGINIA TECH HEAD COACH, said "I know probably much will be made about East Carolina's start, I can tell you they've played two really, really quality opponents. I know there are not a lot of people running to their athletic directors asking for James Madison to get on the schedule, I can promise you that. We're going to play quality people that have other good players as well."
