I am not sure we are losing 'millions' per se. If you go back and look at the history of the VT-Pitt series, then you will see Pitt will get two additional home games. First game because of when VT joined the ACC, which happened to fall in the middle of the conference game rotation for Pitt. The second game because Pitt will be unable to fulfill its portion of the non-conference agreement. I am not sure how much VT and the RBC area is losing out on by VT not being able to host Pitt as a Big East conference game or non-conference game. Honestly I am not sure it even matters since I don't think there is any way for anyone to calculate the value. I was just curious to know what the ACC was going to do or what decision would be made between the two schools since the home-home series cannot be fulfilled under the current arrangement. Maybe VT will replace the Pitt with ODU next year.
