MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - West Virginia University Director of Athletics Oliver Luck has announced that the Mountaineers will play a home-and-home series with NC State.
The Mountaineers are scheduled to play NC State in Raleigh on Sept. 15, 2018, and then play host to the Wolfpack on Sept. 14, 2019.
“I am excited about this series, because it gives our football program and our fans an outstanding home-and-home series with a team from the ACC,” says Luck. “WVU has a lot of alumni living in North Carolina, especially in the triangle region, so it gives our fans a game that is close. We have had a competitive games over the years with NC State, and this is a chance to restart the series.”
The two teams have faced off 10 times, including three bowl games, with the first meeting in 1914 and the last time in the 2010 Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando, Fla. The series is tied at 5-5.
West Virginia opens its 2014 season against Alabama in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on Aug. 30 at 3:30 p.m.  The game will be televised on ABC.
