PROVO, Utah — Brigham Young University and Virginia Tech today announced the schools have agreed to a two-game football series in 2026 and 2030. The Cougars and Hokies are scheduled to meet at Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Virginia, on Sept. 26, 2026, with the second game scheduled for Sept. 14, 2030, at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo.

“Virginia Tech has consistently been one of the best teams in college football for a very long time,” BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe said. “They are always in the running for the top spot in the ACC because of their high level of talent and great coaching. We are pleased to be able to schedule this series."
