Virginia and UTSA Agree to Football Series
Charlottesville, VA – The Virginia football team will play a two-game, home-and-home series with the University of Texas at San Antonio starting in 2013. The Cavaliers and Roadrunners will meet Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013 in Charlottesville and UTSA will host Virginia at the Alamodome on Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014.
UTSA will begin play as an NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) independent in 2011 and will apply to transition to full Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) status by the 2014 season. Virginia will be allowed to count both games played against the Roadrunners as contests against a FBS opponent in terms of the Cavaliers’ bowl eligibility in those seasons.
In 2009 the Roadrunners hired former Miami head coach Larry Coker as the school’s first football coach. UTSA signed its first recruiting class in February and will redshirt all incoming players during the 2010-11 academic year. The team will play its first game against Northeastern (Okla.) State on Sept. 3, 2011, at the Alamodome.
UTSA had previously announced home-and-home series with Louisiana Tech, Colorado State, Houston, Kansas State, Arizona, Arizona State and Baylor.
