Thamel reports that OVC teams can play four non-conference games and then a seven-game conference schedule. West Virginia is scheduled to play OVC member Eastern Kentucky as its season opener on Sept. 12.
WVU had already lost non-conference games to Maryland and Florida State when the Big 12 announced plans for teams to have a 10-game schedule earlier this week. One of those games is permitted to be a non-conference game played in the Big 2 team’s home state. The OVC’s decision all but assures that WVU’s nonconference opponent this season will remain as Eastern Kentucky.
