Virginia football schedules home-and-home series with Texas-San Antonio, to play in Alamodome in 2014
If you thought visiting Laramie, Wyo. or Hattiesburg, Miss. was unconventional, Virginia football will play on the road against Texas-San Antonio in 2014. The Cavaliers announced a home-and-home series with the fledgling program, which will begin in division I-AA in 2011 and apply to become a I-A team by 2014. It's coached by former Miami coach Larry Coker.
The Cavaliers will host the Roadrunners in 2013 and visit them in 2014. The game will be played in the Alamodome -- presumably a big attraction for the Cavaliers -- on Nov. 8, 2014.
Virginia is not the only high-profile program to schedule a home-and-home series with Texas-San Antonio. The Roadrunners also announced home-and-home series with Louisiana Tech, Colorado State, Houston, Kansas State, Arizona, Arizona State and Baylor.
Although Coach Mike London is trying to solidify the program's recruiting reach in the region, there is also interest in recruiting in Texas. Defensive line coach/recruiting coordinator Jeff Hanson coached at three schools in Texas (Lamar, Southwest Texas State, West Texas State) from 1982-88.
London's first recruiting class included tight end Zachary Swanson from Katy, Texas.
