LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — -

Virginia Tech and West Virginia will renew their football rivalry at FedEx Field in 2017.

The game will be played on Sept. 2, 2017, at the home of the Washington Redskins in Landover, Maryland. FedEx Field officials announced the matchup Tuesday.

It will mark Virginia Tech's fourth appearance at FedEx Field since 2004. West Virginia played James Madison there in 2012 and also will play BYU at FedEx Field in 2016.

West Virginia and Virginia Tech, both former members of the Big East, last met in 2005 when the Hokies beat the Mountaineers 34-17 in Morgantown. That marked the 33rd consecutive season that the two teams played.

WVU holds a 28-22-1 advantage in the series, but Virginia Tech has won six of the past eight meetings -- including the last two.

After 2017, the Hokies and Mountaineers also play in 2021 in Morgantown, West Virginia, and 2022 in Blacksburg, Virginia.
