Hokies, Mountaineers to open 2017 at FedEx

Virginia Tech and West Virginia will open the 2017 season against each other at FedEx Field, the home of the Washington Redskins.

The game will take place Sept. 2, 2017, and will be the Hokies' fourth appearance at FedEx Field since 2004 and West Virginia's third since '12. The Mountaineers also will face BYU there on Sept. 24, 2016.

FedEx Field hasn't been kind to the Hokies in recent years, as they have lost to USC (2004), Boise State ('10), and Cincinnati ('12) there.
