Virginia Tech football will meet BYU on the field for the first time, thanks to a newly announced series.
The two schools announced Friday that they will play a home-and-home series in 2026 and 2030. The Cougars and Hokies are scheduled to meet at Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Va., on Sept. 26, 2026, with the second game scheduled for Sept. 14, 2030, at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah.
“Virginia Tech has consistently been one of the best teams in college football for a very long time,” BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe said in a statement. “They are always in the running for the top spot in the ACC because of their high level of talent and great coaching. We are pleased to be able to schedule this series.”
Virginia Tech also announced future games with in-state schools Liberty, Old Dominion and VMI. Seven of those games will take place at Lane Stadium.
The Hokies will travel to Lynchburg to take on Liberty on Nov. 19, 2022, while Liberty will travel to Virginia Tech four straight seasons, from 2027-30. Liberty will begin competing at the FBS level in 2019, joining the likes of Army, BYU, Notre Dame and UMass as independents.
Virginia Tech will face VMI on Sept. 5, 2026, at Lane Stadium.
Virginia Tech also extended its series with Old Dominion with a six-game agreement from 2026 to 2031, with three home games each. Games will be played in Blacksburg in even-numbered years, and in Norfolk, Va., in odd-numbered years. The two teams will meet for the first time at Lane Stadium on Sept. 23 this season.
Old Dominion has competed at the FBS level since 2014.
