This Saturday, when Virginia Tech hosts North Carolina at Lane Stadium, Frank Beamer will be coaching his final home game for the Hokies. As such, the program has found an appropriate way to celebrate him.
Monday morning, Virginia Tech unveiled all-black uniforms for the contest. They'll also be wearing black helmets - and both will feature a patch dedicated to Beamer's 29 seasons in Blacksburg.

Virginia Tech will also be wearing a "retro red" uniform for their final game at Virginia. Here's more, via the school:
The Virginia Tech football team announced plans for its uniform combinations for the team’s final two regular season games. Based on feedback from Hokies’ student-athletes, head coach Frank Beamer has blessed his players’ wishes to wear a black helmet and uniform combination for Saturday’s game vs. North Carolina. Beamer has also approved the team’s desire to wear a retro road look for Beamer’s final regular season game at Virginia on Nov. 28. That maroon helmet, white jersey and maroon pants combination will replicate the Hokies’ road look from Beamer’s inaugural season as Virginia Tech’s head coach in 1987.
Virginia Tech fans - what do we think?
