Virginia vs. Virginia Tech: Vote!

6/22/2009

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

It's time for the fans of the Commonwealth Cup to weigh in on one of the ACC's top rivalries, as the state of Virginia is the next stop on College Football Live's 50 States tour at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Here's your chance to vote on the best team in the state's history, the best coach and the best player. Is Frank Beamer better than George Welsh? Can you put Michael Vick's arrest behind long enough to deem him the best player in the state?

Here's a little background info for those of you that might have been, um, sleeping through this Beamer-dominated rivalry. With last year's 17-14 win over the Cavaliers, Virginia Tech has now won five straight and nine of the past 10 games in the series. 

Beamer is 177-89-2 (.664) in 22 years at Virginia Tech and Al Groh is 56-44 (.560), in eight years at Virginia. Bill Dooley (64-37-1 from 1978-86) and Hampton's Joe Taylor (136-49-1) are also in the mix. 

I've already cast my vote. Time for yours.
