Former Butler and Big I players return Saturday

[singlepic=51,250,170,watermark,left]Virgina Tech players Jarrett Boykin and Eddie Whitley return to the area Saturday to open the 2008 college football season. Boykin was Butler’s best receiver last year, and he was also a great all-around talent for the Bulldogs.

This is Lindsay’ senior season at ECU.

The game is televised Saturday at noon on ESPN.
