WOAY – WVU athletic director Shane Lyons announced Wednesday that the Mountaineers football team will play three games against the Ohio Bobcats later this decade.
West Virginia leads the all-time series with the Bobcats 13-4, including a win in the most recent meeting, 20-3 in 2021. The two squads will meet September 6, 2025 at Peden Stadium in Athens, followed by matchups in Morgantown on September 18, 2027, and on September 1, 2029.
