West Virginia vs. James Madison: "Sam Huff Day"
Saturday, Sept. 15
Kickoff: 4:30

The West Virginia-James Madison game will be played at FedExField on "Sam Huff Day," honoring the legendary Redskins linebacker and former Mountaineer.

This is the second ever meeting between the schools' football programs.

The Mountaineers defeated James Madison 45-10 at West Virginia’s Mountaineer Field on Sept. 25, 2004. Both schools finished that year as champions as WVU hoisted the Big East crown and JMU won the D1-AA National Championship.

West Virginia has been one of the elite programs in the nation over the past decade, winning eight or more games for 10 consecutive years, receiving AP Top 25 billing for six of the past seven years, including three Top 10 finishes, and earning 10 straight bowl trips.

In addition to winning the 2004 championship, James Madison has posted winning seasons each of the past eight years -- including 8-5 last year -- and advanced to the playoffs four times over that span.

In 2010, the Dukes knocked off No. 13 Virginia Tech, 21-16, on the road in Blacksburg, Va.

Virginia Tech vs. Cincinnati
Saturday, Sept. 29
Kickoff: TBD

The game is the third trip to FedExField for Virginia Tech, joining a 2004 matchup against USC and a 2010 game vs. Boise State. Cincinnati is making its FedExField debut.

Virginia Tech has become one of the nation's elite college football powers in head coach Frank Beamer's 25 seasons in Blacksburg.

The Hokies have finished in the top 20 in 16 of the past 17 seasons, including No. 17 last year. Last season marked their eighth consecutive season with 10 or more wins and ended with their 19th consecutive bowl appearance.

Cincinnati has emerged as a Big East power in recent years. Under second-year head coach Butch Jones, the Bearcats posted a 10-3 mark and finished No. 24 in the AP poll.

The 2009 Bearcats finished with a 12-1 record (losing only to Florida in the Sugar Bowl) and ranked No. 8 in AP poll.
