Virginia and Old Dominion announced today (Feb. 8) the first football series between the two programs. The three-game series is scheduled for the 2018, 2020 and 2022 seasons. The first and last games in the series will be held in Charlottesville while the middle contest will take place in Norfolk.
The specific dates and locations for the games are listed below and subject to change:
Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018 – Charlottesville, Va.
Saturday, Nov. 21, 2020 – Norfolk, Va.

This will be the first meeting between the two teams from the Commonwealth. ODU restarted its program in 2009 after previously fielding a team for 11 seasons from 1930 to 1941. At that time the school was known as the Norfolk College of William & Mary. The two schools never faced each other during the first era of ODU football.
