CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The University of Virginia has released its 2000 football schedule which features six home games for the Cavaliers. Starting times will be announced later.

The Cavaliers open their 2000 slate with a game against Brigham Young at the newly expanded Carl Smith Center, home of David A. Harrison III Field at Scott Stadium on Sept. 2. Virginia's football stadium has been undergoing an expansion project scheduled to be completed before the start of the upcoming season that will increase the stadium capacity to 61,500.

Virginia will also play home games against Richmond (Sept. 9), Clemson (Sept. 23), Maryland (Oct. 7), North Carolina (Oct. 28), and N.C. State (Nov. 18).

Road games include contests against both participants in last season's national title game-Florida State on Oct. 21 and Virginia Tech on Nov. 25.

The schedule also features a Thursday night game against Georgia Tech in Atlanta on Nov. 9. The Cavaliers' first road game is at Duke on Sept. 16. Virginia also plays at Wake Forest on Sept. 30.

The annual spring game will be played on April 14 (Friday) at 6:00 p.m. at Kloeckner Stadium. In case of rain, the game will be played at the University Hall Turf Field.
