Virginia Tech Hokies est un club omnisports universitaire de Virginia Tech à Blacksburg (Virginie). Les équipes des Hokies participent aux compétitions universitaires organisées par la National Collegiate Athletic Association. Virginia Tech fait partie de la division Atlantic Coast Conference depuis 2003.

La plus fameuse équipe des Hokies est celle de football américain qui évolue au Lane Stadium, enceinte de 66 233 places inaugurée en 1965.

Origine du nom de l'équipe

L'origine du surnom remonte à 1896, suite à concours organisé afin de trouver un cri de ralliement (« Old Hokie ») lors du changement de nom de l'Université. Le mot « Hokie » n'a pas de sens, son auteur O.M. Stull s'inspirant sans doute d'un mot d'argot signifiant la surprise et l’excitation, d'ailleurs ce dernier reçu 5 dollars de récompense pour son idée.
