The Commonwealth Challenge
The VT-UVA rivalry has just reached the next level. With the unveiling of the Commonwealth Challenge (presented by Adelphia) the decades old war of words between fans and alumni of these two institutions will finally be expressed in a formal competition.
The winner of the Commonwealth Challenge trophy will be determined by assigning a point value to each of the athletic competitions between the two schools in 21 different sports. Where the schools don't compete head-to-head the winner will be determined by their placement in the ACC conference championships. Hokiesports.com has all the details.
Like Duke and UNC's Carlyle Cup, the Commonwealth Challenge will bring a new level of intensity to a rivalry that has already been stoked by Virginia Tech's recent move to the ACC. Watch out folks, this could get ugly.
