Tennessee and Virginia Tech will play at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2016

NASCAR and college football will collide.

Tennessee and Virginia Tech have agreed to play at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2016 in front of what could be a record 160,000 fans.

This matchup has been in the works for a long time, and the drive is almost in the middle between both campuses. I can see future Tennessee RB Jalen Hurd rounding turn four now.

And this may not be the only game at a NASCAR speedway either.

College football and NASCAR: the perfect storm for mullets, beer and jorts.


It’s amazing how Neyland Stadium just sits perfectly inside Bristol Motor Speedway:
