BLACKSBURG, Va. -

Virginia Tech is battling Georgia Tech Thursday night in Atlanta, Georgia. What the Hokies are wearing is now a conversation piece.

The team's helmets are designed to look like Hokie Stone. That's what covers nearly all the buildings on campus and has become part of Virginia Tech's image.

Students are fine with it on the buildings, but are mixed about the helmets.

"It's kind of what we're known for, is our Hokie Stone so, I think it's kind of cool that they have it on helmets," said Kimberly Patten, a Virginia Tech 5th year Senior.

"I'm actually not a huge fan of it. I really like when college football uniforms are more classic, just basic team colors and not too showy," said Rachel Skay, a Virginia Tech Junior.

The Associate Director of Athletic Communication says there's a chance the team may wear the helmets again.
