Virginia’s home schedule features new coach Bronco Mendenhall’s debut on Sept. 3 against Richmond. The home slate includes dates with Central Michigan (Sept. 24), Pittsburgh (Oct. 15), North Carolina (Oct. 22), Louisville (Oct. 29) and Miami (Nov. 12). The Pittsburgh game is the annual Homecomings contest. Kickoff times will be announced at a later date.
“I’m grateful for the support of our season ticket holders,” Mendenhall said. “We consider all of our fans to be part of the Virginia football family. They will play an important role as we collectively work to build a consistently success football program and make Saturdays in the fall at Scott Stadium the place to be!”
