Virginia Tech and second-year coach Brent Pry will open the 2023 season Sept. 2 at home against Old Dominion and follow that with three non-conference games, including a home game against Purdue, the ACC announced Monday night.

The ACC released the complete 2023 schedule for league teams during a broadcast on ACC Network.

The Hokies’ early-season schedule includes games Sept. 16 against Rutgers and Sept. 23 at Marshall.

The Hokies and Virginia will close the regular season by renewing their rivalry for the Commonwealth Cup on Nov. 25 in Charlottesville. The teams canceled their scheduled game in Blacksburg during the 2022 season after the on-campus shooting deaths of three UVA players in November.

Virginia and Virginia Tech have played 103 times, beginning in 1895, and had met annually since 1970 without interruption, but Virginia canceled its final two games after Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr. and D’Sean Perry were killed following a field trip to Washington, D.C. Former Virginia football player Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. faces three counts of second-degree murder and other charges.

Virginia coach Tony Elliott will open his second season Sept. 2 against Tennessee in Nashville before hosting James Madison on Sept. 9 and visiting Maryland on Sept. 16. The Cavaliers finish their non-conference slate at home Oct. 7 against William & Mary.

UVA also should see former star quarterback Brennan Armstong on Sept. 22 in Charlottesville in a game against N.C. State. Armstrong, a record-breaking quarterback at UVA, transferred to N.C. State after the 2022 season.
