BYU And WVU Competing At FedExField On Saturday


FedExField will welcome visitors on Saturday, Sept. 24, when WVU and BYU battle at 3:30 p.m. in front of a large crowd in a neutral-site game between these non-conference opponents. 

With the Redskins going out of town to New York this weekend, FedExField is going to have some visitors.

Brigham Young University and West Virginia University will be facing off at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24 in Landover, Md. The game will be broadcasted on ESPN2. The neutral-site game will bring BYU (1-2) to the East Coast to compete against the Big 12's WVU (2-0), who is coming off a Bye Week.

This will be BYU's first game this year against a non-Pac-12 conference opponent and a chance for the Cougars to show why they possibly deserve a spot in Big 12 expanision. WVU, meanwhile, will look to remain undefeated before preparing to begin conference play. 

This will be the first meeting in the schools' history.  

FedExField has played host to Division I college football games before, including Boise State vs. Virginia Tech and Penn State vs. Indiana in 2010, Notre Dame vs. Maryland and the Army-Navy game in 2011 and Virginia Tech vs. Cincinnati in 2012.
