West Virginia announced a two-game series with former Big East rival Virginia Tech, starting in 2021.

The schools will play in Morgantown Sept. 18, 2021, and in Blacksburg, Va., Sept. 24, 2022.

"This game is great for college football," Mountaineers athletic director Oliver Luck said in a statement. "We all know that the two schools have extraordinary fan bases, and both schools will be counting down the days until the Hokies and the Mountaineers meet again."

The two teams have played 51 times starting in 1912, and annually from 1973-2005. Virginia Tech won the teams' last meeting, 34-17, in 2005.
