West Virginia football had three times announced for home games for the 2018 season Thursday afternoon. After having all six home games in 2017 without a prime time game, West Virginia will have at least three this year.
The Mountaineers start the season in Charlotte, North Carolina, taking on the Tennessee Volunteers September 1, at 3:30 ET.
West Virginia kicks off their night games at Milan Puskar Stadium with Youngstown State at 6:00 pm ET on Saturday, September 8.
On Thursday, October 25 the Baylor Bears travel to Morgantown to take on the Mountaineers at 7:00 pm ET on FS1.
Finally, the Oklahoma Sooners wrap up the Mountaineers regular season, coming to Morgantown for a prime time game on Friday, November 23, at 8:00 pm ET on ESPN.
With some very exciting players on their roster for 2018 including wide receiver David Sills, quarterback and potential Heisman candidate Will Grier, and linebacker David Long, it makes sense the Mountaineers finally get awarded with some prime time games.
Home match ups against Kansas State and TCU also have potential to be scheduled as prime time games, giving the Mountaineers a potential five night home games in 2018. After getting an extremely unfair shake from the scheduling committee in 2017, it is nice to see the Mountaineers finally getting some recognition for the exciting team they can be in 2018.
