(Associated Press)

The Maryland football team has shuffled several of its future nonconference schedules, switching home-and-home series with Central Florida and West Virginia.

The Terrapins were originally scheduled to face the Knights in 2020 and 2021, while visiting West Virginia in 2016 and hosting the Mountaineers in 2017, but those games have been reversed.

Under the new schedule, Maryland will visit Central Florida on Sept. 17, 2016, and host the Knights on Sept. 23, 2017. The West Virginia series has been bumped back to Sept. 19, 2020 (in Morgantown) and Sept. 4, 2021 (Byrd Stadium).

Only one other game has been planned for 2020 — Maryland will host Towson on Sept. 5, 2020.
