U.Va. to face Mary­land on grid­iron

Old ACC ri­vals to re­new se­ries in 2023 and 2024

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - SPORTS - BY MIKE BAR­BER

CHAR­LOTTESVILLE — Vir­ginia has sched­uled a home-and-home foot­ball se­ries with for­mer ACC foe Mary­land, the school an­nounced Thurs­day.

The Cava­liers will visit Byrd Sta­dium on Sept. 16, 2023, then host the Ter­rap­ins on Sept. 14, 2024.

Mary­land was a long­time ACC mem­ber be­fore leav­ing for the Big Ten in 2014, a move largely driven by foot­ball. The two teams have played 78 times but haven’t met since 2013.

“There has been dis­cus­sion about get­ting Mary­land back on our sched­ule since I ar­rived, so I am pleased we could work out the de­tails for a se­ries,” said Vir­ginia coach Bronco Men­den­hall, in a state­ment re­leased by the school. “The schools have so much his­tory as con­fer­ence ri­vals. I be­lieve this is a se­ries that ben­e­fits both pro­grams, and I’m sure the fans of both schools will be ex­cited to hear this an­nounce­ment.”

Wed­nes­day, U.Va. an­nounced it would play Ge­or­gia in the 2020 Chick-fil-A Kick­off game in At­lanta.
