West Virginia will open up their home slate with their first ever meeting against Duquesne. When the Dukes come to Morgantown, the two sides will begin things at 6 p.m. The game will broadcast on ESPN+.
The Mountaineers then welcome arch-rival Pitt to town for the first time since 2011. In what will likely be a sold out Milan Puskar Stadium, the hatred will have to get started early. West Virginia and the Panthers will kick things off at 7:30 on ABC. With the game set to be a marquee matchup, it fits perfectly into this slot for a national television audience.
The kickoff time and network for WVU’s October 12th trip to Houston was also announced. Things will begin with the Cougars at 7:00 on FS1.
