WVU Football’s 2022 Meetings with Pitt, Virginia Tech Moved



WVU football’s season opener against Pitt and week four’s game at Virginia Tech have both been moved. Pitt is rescheduled from Saturday, Sept. 3 to Thursday, Sept. 1; Virginia Tech will now be played two days earlier than expected, on Sept. 22.

“Moving two of our oldest football rivalries to primetime continues to build excitement for the 2022 season,” WVU Director of Athletics Shane Lyons said. “Fans will get to start the Labor Day Weekend with the Backyard Brawl, which is a great way to renew one of the best rivalries in college football. And if heading to Blacksburg for the first time since 2004 wasn’t hard enough, changing it to a Thursday night matchup will showcase the rivalry even more to college football fans around the country.”

Pitt and Virginia Tech will join Baylor’s Oct. 13 showing to allow Mountaineer fans three Thursday games this season. Pitt will kick off at Heinz Field and Virginia Tech will play at Lane Stadium, while the Bears will make the trip to Milan Puskar Stadium.
