Despite an up-and-down 2021 season, West Virginia has a chance to win a bowl game and enter the 2022 season on a high note. And the Mountaineers will need it as the 2022 season schedule has been announced.
WVU opens the 2022 season with the renewal of the Backyard Brawl against Pitt at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Sept. 3. For the first time since 2011, the Mountaineers and the Panthers will face off for one of the most historic rivalries in college football.

The Big 12 schedule begins in Week 2 with a home game against Kansas on Sept. 10 before the non-conference schedule concludes with a two week stretch of hosting Towson on Sept. 17 and traveling to Blacksburg, Virginia for an away game against Virginia Tech — an attempt to keep the Black Diamond Trophy for the second consecutive year.
WVU’s true Big 12 schedule begins against Texas, traveling to Austin, Texas on Oct. 1, with a bye week over the weekend of Oct. 8, before the brunt of the Mountaineers’ schedule begins.
WVU alternates home and away games against Baylor, Texas Tech, TCU and Iowa State over the following four weeks — with the game against Baylor coming on a Thursday night — before back-to-back home games against Oklahoma and Kansas State on Nov. 12 and Nov. 19.
The regular season finale comes on Nov. 26 in Stillwater, Oklahoma against Oklahoma State, and the Big 12 championship game, should WVU make it, is scheduled for Dec. 3.
All of the times for WVU’s 2022 games are still be determined at a later date.
