Teams will play in 2016 at FedEx Field in Washington, DC

FedExField, home of the Washington Redskins, announced today that it has added two more exciting college football games to its already unmatched slate. Brigham Young University and West Virginia University will play on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2016, and Maryland will host Texas on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018.


The BYU-WVU game will mark the first meeting between the schools’ football programs. Texas holds a 3-0 series advantage over Maryland. The last meeting between the programs was in the 1978 Sun Bowl.


“We are pleased to host these matchups at FedExField,” Redskins Chief Marketing Officer Mitch Gershman said. “We strive to bring a number of high-profile sporting and entertainment events to FedExField as a benefit to our season ticketholders and the rest of the metropolitan area, and these games are great examples.”


FedExField will also host other high-profile college football games such as Penn State vs. Indiana on Nov. 20, 2010.


“BYU has been one of the consistently powerful programs over the last 35-40 years,” WVU Director of Athletics Oliver Luck said. “In so many ways, Lavelle Edwards reminds me of Don Nehlen. Both built solid foundations at their respective schools. Anybody that has played quarterback in the NCAA has enormous respect for the quarterback tradition at BYU since the early 1970s.
