WVU BEEFS UP SCHEDULE
With all the talk about how the Big East schedules easy games WVU decided to do something about it. The Moutaineers make deals to play 3 national championship contenders.
WVU has added Auburn, Florida State and Michigan State to its future football schedules.
West Virginia will travel to Auburn for a game at the SEC school on September 6, 2008. The Tigers will visit Morgantown on September 5, 2009.
In 2012-13, the Mountaineers will play home-and-home with Florida State of the ACC. The first game is scheduled for September 8, 2012, in Morgantown, with a return game on September 14, 2013, in Tallahassee.
West Virginia also has a letter of intent to play Michigan State out of the Big Ten, with a game in Morgantown in 2010 and a game in East Lansing for 2011.
"I think our fans will enjoy these three major college football programs from BCS conferences on our future schedules," says Pastilong. "We look forward to hosting them in Morgantown."
