Thursday night featured an ACC showcase game between Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech. Yellow Jackets fans were celebrating the 100th anniversary of Grant Field, and for the occasion the home side wore throwback white jerseys.

However, what really blew people away – for better or worse – was Virginia Tech’s special edition “Hokie Stone” helmets. Built to look like the limestone buildings that comprise roughly 80-percent of the entire Blacksburg campus, the lids sent Twttier into a tizzy.
