GREENSBORO, NC – The Atlantic Coast Conference announced its 2020 football schedule on Thursday. If public health guidance allows, the schedule will begin Thursday, Sept. 10. All 15 conference schools will play an 11-game schedule, with 10 games against ACC opponents and one versus a non-conference program.

In 2020, Virginia will host VMI (Sept. 11), NC State (Oct. 10), North Carolina (Oct. 31), Louisville (Nov. 7), Duke (Nov. 14) and Boston College (Dec. 5). UVA’s season-opener against VMI is the Cavaliers’ lone non-conference game and their only Friday game on the 2020 schedule. The Hoos' originally scheduled game at Old Dominion has been canceled.

UVA will travel for contests at Virginia Tech (Sept. 19), at Clemson (Oct. 3), at Wake Forest (Oct. 17), at Miami (Oct. 24) and at Florida State (Nov. 28). Click here to see the 2020 UVA schedule.

The Hokies will open the 2020 campaign at home against NC State on Sept. 12. It will mark the Wolfpack's first visit to Lane Stadium since the Hokies registered a 28-13 home victory in 2015. The Hokies will retain their non-conference matchup with Liberty. That will now be played at Lane Stadium on November 7. Click here to see the 2020 Virginia Tech schedule.

The 2020 season will mark the first time the Commonwealth Clash game between Tech and UVA hasn't been played on Thanksgiving weekend since 2005. It will mark the first time the in-state foes will meet in the month of September since Frank Beamer's inaugural season when the two teams played on Sept. 19, 1987.

Old Dominion University, scheduled to host both UVA and Wake Forest in 2020, will now travel to Winston Salem for a non-conference contest with the Demon Deacons Friday October 9th.
