Virginia football clarifies future non-conference schedule confusion

Virginia football fans who recently received their season tickets for the upcoming season were also given a tentative glimpse of what the Cavaliers’ future nonconference schedule would look like. Most notably, it included a previously unannounced 2015 game in Atlanta against Auburn.

But on Tuesday, the school said to disregard those future schedules because the ticket brochure was created before the ACC announced Syracuse and Pittsburgh would be joining the league for the 2013-14 season.

With the expansion, the ACC is going to a nine-game conference schedule and Virginia will need to alter its nonconference slate to compensate for these changes.

“We apologize for any confusion generated as a result of our season ticket brochure listing incorrect opponents in future years,” executive associate athletics director Jon Oliver said in a school-issued statement. “With conference expansion in the ACC and conference realignment for some of our tentative opponents, we are still reviewing our schedule in future years but our future schedules are not final.

“With regard to a game against Auburn in future years, there is nothing in place that would have us playing this game in 2015. As we finalize our future non-conference schedules we will update our website.”

Below you’ll find a list of all the future nonconference games Virginia currently has scheduled, according to its Web site

2012 — Richmond (9/1); Penn State (9/8); at TCU (9/22); Louisiana Tech (9/29)

2013 — at Penn State (9/14); VMI (9/21); Ball State (8/5)

2014 — UCLA (8/30); Richmond (9/6); Kent State (9/27)

2015 — at UCLA (9/5); William & Mary (9/12)

The Cavaliers also have a home-and-home series set up with Stanford that will take place in 2017 and 2018.
