Virginia announces future series with Boise State

Mike London AP

A couple of hours ahead of the ACC’s schedule release, one of its members has announced a future football series with a “mid-major” powerhouse.

In a press release, Virginia confirmed that it has scheduled a home-and-home series with Boise State.  The Cavaliers will host the Broncos Sept. 26, 2015, in Charlottesville, then travel to Boise for a game Sept. 23, 2017.

“We’re excited to announce this series with a program that has been exceptional over the last decade,” said UVa. athletic director Jon Oliver in a statement. “They’ve done it with great coaching, solid recruiting and a fearless approach to competition. We are trying to do the same thing and this will be an incredible challenge for us as we continue to build our program.

“The 2015 and 2017 seasons could end up being two of the toughest schedules in the history of our football program and we hope they will excite and energize our fans, student-athletes and recruits.”

The Cavaliers have a pair of contests against Pac-12 schools on its future schedules — a 2015 game against UCLA, one in 2017 versus Stanford.  The former game is on the road, the latter at home.

The 2015 games against Boise State will mark the first time the two programs have met on a football field.

    It’s nice to see a future Big Ten school scheduling strong Out-of-conference games. Once the Maryland suit is settled for far less than $50,000 million, we will seethe dismantling of the basketball-centric ACC evolve to the “Big East Deux”! NC State and Va Tech to SEC; North Carolina or Ga Tech to Big Ten; Clemson and Fla St to Big 12; and Miami “Jackin’ Jimmy” with the remaing schools. Maybe they’ll let the Catholic schools join and we can begin the entire conference realighnment from scratch! The ACCstarted the fiasco….they may as well finish it! LOL!!!

    Given Virginia’s recent history of backing out of the return game clause in their contracts (see
    Penn State 2014), Boise State would be wise to have a back-up plan for another opponent in 2017.

    gamecocker:
    Wasn’t it the big 10 and Nebraska who started all this?

    You really can’t think of any event involving penn state that might have changed payouts or people’s opinions of penn state?

    No, no, no….it was the ACC by stealing Boston College, Va Tech, and Miami from the Big East. Nebraska joining the Big 10 came years later…..They’ll get what they deserve…..But have no fear: Commish Swofford, Coach K, and Roy Boy Williams will save the day….NOTTTTT!!!!

    Way to go Boise. You really did yourself in scheduling UVA. Now everyone will shut up about your crummy schedule.
