U.Va. to face Maryland on gridiron
Old ACC rivals to renew series in 2023 and 2024
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.
