The BYU Cougars and the Virginia Cavaliers have added two additional games to their future football series.
BYU will travel to face Virginia at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville on Sept. 7, 2019. The Cavaliers will then travel to face the Cougars at LaVell Stadium in Provo on Sept. 19, 2020.
Back in November, the two schools announced a home-and-home series that is scheduled for Aug. 31, 2013 in Charlottesville and Sept. 20, 2014 in Provo.
“The extension of the series with BYU is a result of our efforts to adjust our non-conference schedule in 2013,” said Virginia athletic director Jon Oliver. “We look forward to the four-game series against a quality football program with a proven track record of success.”
In their last meeting in 2000, BYU defeated Virginia 38-35 in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers were victorious in the other two meetings, 22-16 in the 1987 All-American Bowl and 45-40 in Provo in 1999.
Today’s announcement gives BYU and Virginia a total of four match-ups through 2020:
- Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013 – Charlottesville, Va.
- Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014 – Provo, Utah
- Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019 – Charlottesville, Va.
- Saturday, Sept. 19, 2020 – Provo, Utah
