CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. ( – The University of Virginia football program finalized its 2020 football schedule today (Sept. 4). Virginia’s slate features 11 regular-season games, including six home games. The Cavaliers completed the schedule today by adding a home game versus Abilene Christian on Nov. 21.

UVA opens the program’s 131st season of football on Saturday, Sept. 19 at Virginia Tech. The game will kick at either 3:30 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. and air on ABC. Starting times and television broadcast information for all remaining contests will be announced at a later date. Final start time for the Virginia Tech game will be announced at the conclusion of the ACC’s games of Sept. 12.

In 2020, Virginia will host NC State (Oct. 10), North Carolina (Oct. 31), Louisville (Nov. 7), Duke (Nov. 14), Abilene Christian (Nov. 21) and Boston College (Dec. 5).

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).

Virginia faces eight teams that appeared in a bowl game last season: Boston College (TicketSmarter Birmingham Bowl), Clemson (Fiesta Bowl/CFP National Championship), Florida State (Tony the Tiger Sun), North Carolina (Military Bowl), Miami (Walk-On’s Independence), Louisville (Franklin American Mortgage Music City), Virginia Tech (Belk) and Wake Forest (New Era Pinstripe).

The Cavaliers have an off weekend on Saturday, Sept. 12 and Saturday, Sept. 26. UVA does not face 2020 ACC foes Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh and Syracuse.

The current guidelines for sports venues provided by the Commonwealth of Virginia under the “Forward Virginia” plan (announced June 18), allow for the lesser of 50 percent occupancy of the facility or 1,000 patrons.

Due to health and safety considerations in addition to the current guidelines for sports venues, attendance at UVA home games at Scott Stadium will be limited to family of student-athletes and each team’s coaching staff until further notice. Should the Commonwealth of Virginia adjust the protocols for spectator attendance, the UVA athletics department will announce new capacity guidelines and other protocols to attend events.

2020 Virginia Football season ticket holders will receive an email from the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office with information about attendance, ticketing and parking for home football games.
