Charlottesville, Va. - Virginia and BYU will meet in football for a two-game series in 2013 and 2014, the schools jointly announced today. The teams are scheduled to meet Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013, in Charlottesville and Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014, in Provo, Utah.
Virginia Executive Associate Director of Athletics Jon Oliver said the series came about following the announcement this year by the Atlantic Coast Conference that its member schools would go from a nine-game league slate to eight games starting in 2013.
"We feel fortunate that we were able to schedule a series with BYU, a school with a strong football tradition, on such short notice," Oliver said. "Historically the games have been very competitive and we look forward to opening the season against them in 2013 in Scott Stadium."
The 2013 season opener will be the fourth meeting in the series between the teams. Virginia defeated BYU 22-16 during the 1987 All-American Bowl in Birmingham, Ala. The Cavaliers defeated the Cougars 45-40 in Provo, Utah, in 1999 and the following season BYU downed UVa 38-35 in overtime in Charlottesville.
Virginia's other non-conference opponents in 2013 include Penn State on the road and VMI and Ball State at Scott Stadium. The dates for those three games and the ACC opponents for the Cavaliers' 2013 schedule will be announced at a later date.
