PHOTO: How Virginia Tech Is Motivating Itself For The Commonwealth Cup

VT is looking for its ninth win in a row.

ESPN College Football just retweeted a tweet from the Virginia Tech Equipment Twitter account showing how the Hokies are motivating themselves for the upcoming game against Virginia. The annual rivalry, referred to as the Commonwealth Cup, comes not just with bragging rights, but the winner gets a trophy. Virginia Tech has been the home of the trophy since its win streak in the Commonwealth Cup began in 2004. After eight years, it doesn't look like VT wants to give up the trophy.

The original tweet has been deleted for some reason, but here's the motivational photo.
