Virginia Tech football announced on Wednesday that Tech and Arizona have agreed to play a home-and-home series starting in 2029.
The series will start with the Wildcats hosting the Hokies on Sept. 8, 2029. Virginia Tech is hosting Arizona on Aug. 30, 2030.
“Even though this series is 13 years away, we felt it was a unique opportunity to schedule a Pac-12 team home and home,” said Virginia Tech Director of Athletics Whit Babcock in a press release. “Strength of schedule and securing high-quality, Power 5 opponents will continue to be paramount in the College Football Playoff era. Arizona AD Greg Byrne and I have a good relationship and we started this discussion back in the offseason.”
The last time Virginia Tech played a Pac-12 team was in the 2013 Sun Bowl, when the Hokies lost to UCLA 42-12. The last time Virginia Tech played a road game west of the Mississippi River was in 2002, when Tech defeated Texas A&M 13-3.
