WVU, Virginia Tech plan to renew rivalry
By David Ubben
The Black Diamond Trophy is making a comeback.
West Virginia and Virginia Tech will renew their rivalry across state lines with a home-and-home series beginning in 2021.
The Mountaineers will host the Hokies that season before returning to Blacksburg in 2022.
"During my three years as Athletic Director at West Virginia University, I have heard from legions of Mountaineer fans, particularly those in the Southern part of the state, who have expressed their strong sentiments to renew the football rivalry with Virginia Tech," West Virginia AD Oliver Luck said Wednesday in a release.
"This game is great for college football. We all know that the two schools have extraordinary fan bases, and both schools will be counting down the days until the Hokies and the Mountaineers meet again."
