West Virginia's future schedules are coming together quickly.
Athletic director Oliver Luck announced Wednesday that the Mountaineers will play a home-and-home series with N.C. State — Sept. 15, 2018 in Raleigh, N.C and Sept. 14, 2019 in Morgantown, W.Va.
“I am excited about this series, because it gives our football program and our fans an outstanding home-and-home series with a team from the ACC,” Luck said in a statement. “WVU has a lot of alumni living in North Carolina, especially in the triangle region, so it gives our fans a game that is close. We have had a competitive games over the years with NC State, and this is a chance to restart the series.”
Luck announced Tuesday that West Virginia will open the 2018 season against Tennessee at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.
West Virginia and NC State faced each other 10 times between 1914 and 2010, splitting the series evenly at five wins apiece. Three meetings have been in bowl games: the Wolfpack won the 1972 Peach Bowl, 49-13; the Mountaineers rebounded with a 13-10 win in the 1976 Peach Bowl; NC State won the most recent meeting, a 23-7 final in the 2010 Champs Sports Bowl.
