The college football season kicks off in a month, but the excitement is already growing. And so is the trash talking.
Virginia Tech kicks off their season with a huge matchup against the defending national champions Ohio State. Their mascot, Brutus Buckeye, took to Twitter to countdown to show off his excitement.
That launched a back and forth between the Hokies and Brutus.
Virginia Tech hosts Ohio State on Sept. 7 in Blacksburg. Bring your lunch pails.
