CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Atlantic Coast Conference announced the start time for Virginia's Sept. 21 home football game against Old Dominion. The game will be televised on ESPN2 and will begin at 7 p.m.

It's the first ever meeting between the two programs and the first of three scheduled games between the Monarchs and Cavaliers.

"I was on the phone last night talking to recruits, talking about how we played at Virginia Tech and UVA coming up," Old Dominion head coach Bobby Wilder said. "Next year we play Wake Forest at home. We're at North Carolina, we're home for UVA. For the players that might be just a notch below the Power 5 and don't get those offers - here's an opportunity to come prove yourself."
