WVU Football Bryce Ford-Wheaton(7)Maryland

WVU wide receiver Bryce Ford-Wheaton goes airborne after making a catch in the 2021 season opener at Maryland, a 30-24 Mountaineer loss.

For the second straight year, WVU will open the football season on the road in a rivalry game.

Last year, that trip resulted in a 30-24 loss at Maryland. This season, coaches and players are obviously hoping for better when the Mountaineers visit Pitt at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1 at Acrisure Stadium — formerly Heinz Field — in Pittsburgh.
