Hokies' Home-And-Home Series With Wisconsin Moved Back Again

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

With Wisconsin adding LSU to their 2016 slate today, Virginia Tech has once again been bumped from the Badgers' schedule, forcing their home-and-home series with the Hokies to be moved for the second time.

According to David Teel of the Daily Press, the schools will be moving back their long-awaited series to 2019 and 2020:

This does present a problem, however, as Teel points out, in that the Hokies will then have to play an additional foe, Notre Dame, in one of those years that has yet to be announced. So it looks like the Hokies will have to move a game to accommodate that match up.

The replacement opponent for the 2016 and 2017 match ups has not been announced, but sources close to the site have provided us with a name. We will announce it when it is finally reportable.

The series was originally scheduled for 2008 and 2009, but a similar situation forced the Hokies to have to replace the Badgers. They did so in a home-and-home with Nebraska, winning both games, including the 2009 victory that produced one of the most memorable moments in Virginia Tech football history.
