Charlottesville, Va. - Virginia and Liberty announced today (May 13) the first football series between the two programs. The three-game series is scheduled for the 2018, 2019 and 2027 seasons. The first two games in the series will be held in Charlottesville while the third contest will take place in Lynchburg.

Liberty will compete as a Football Bowl Subdivision team during the 2018 season during its reclassification process. The Flames’ program will be eligible for bowl games in 2019.

Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018 – Charlottesville, Va.
