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.

Virginia Finishes Third In Directors' Cup Rankings

UTSA v UVa at the AlamoDome -- they expect to sell 65k?

The only benefit that I can see from UV playing in San Antonio is visibility to about 20 (5 star) 30(4 star) 60(3 star)rated football players that are probably better than any current player on UA team. FYI: nobody in SA cares about UV, but they do care a lot about football and their local university...UA is damn lucky to get a home and home with an up and coming team. Playing a Texas team will give UA a chance to play some real football, not that pansy East Coast touch ball.
