UVa. announces 2013 football schedule

uva-logo-new2The Atlantic Coast Conference today released the 2013 football schedules for the 14 schools that will be conference members for the 2013-14 academic year. UVa.’s slate features 12 regular-season games, including eight home contests. The schedule marks the first time in Virginia’s history the Cavaliers will play eight home games. Starting times for all contests and the home game designated for Homecomings will be announced at a later date.

“This is a very challenging schedule, but it is the type of schedule I want us to play each and every year,” Virginia head coach Mike London said. “We will have to be our best in every practice and every game. With eight home games, our fans can really make a difference. We can’t do it without them.”

Virginia will play home games against BYU (Aug. 31), Oregon (Sept. 7), VMI (Sept. 21), Ball State (Oct. 5), Duke (Oct. 19), Georgia Tech (Oct. 26), Clemson (Nov. 2), and Virginia Tech (Nov. 30).

Virginia will travel to conference games at Pittsburgh (Sept. 28), Maryland (Oct. 12), North Carolina (Nov. 9) and Miami (Nov. 23).

The Cavaliers will have bye weeks on Sept. 14 and Nov 16. UVa does not face ACC opponents Boston College, NC State, Wake Forest, Syracuse or Florida State in 2013. The 2013 season is the first year the ACC will feature Pittsburgh and Syracuse as conference members.

The Cavaliers will face eight teams that played in postseason bowl games in 2012 and two teams (Clemson and Oregon) that finished in last season’s final Associated Press and USA Today college football polls.

Season tickets for the 2013 season provide the best value and are available at five price levels based on seating locations at Scott Stadium: $345, $314, $230, $198 and $176. Season tickets offer savings between $53-$88 depending on seating locations compared to single game ticket prices.

2012 Virginia football season ticket holders may renew their tickets during the early renewal campaign that is currently underway. The early renewal period includes enrollment in an auto-renewal program that allows season tickets to be paid in six installments over the course of 12 months. Renewal applications will be mailed to 2012 season ticket holders in mid-March. The priority ordering deadline for football season tickets is April 30.

New buyers may reserve their 2013 season tickets now by placing a $50 per seat deposit. Those who place a deposit will be placed ahead of other new buyers when the full season ticket sales period begins on March 11. The $50 per seat deposit will be applied to the final season ticket purchase. New buyers should order their season tickets by the April 30 deadline to maximize seating priority.

Virginia will begin spring football practice on March 18. The annual Orange-Blue Spring Football Scrimmage will take place at Scott Stadium on Saturday, April 6. Admission and parking are free.
