2014 UVA Football Schedule Released: Tough Schedule Featuring Louisville, FSU, UCLA, Virginia Tech

This guy. - Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

We've known the who and the where for a while now. Today, the ACC let us know the when as well.

August 30: UCLA
September 6: Richmond
September 13: Louisville
September 20: @ BYU
September 27: Kent State
October 4: Pittsburgh
October 11: BYE
October 18: @ Duke
October 25: UNC-Chapel Hill
November 1: @ Georgia Tech
November 8: @ Florida State
November 15: BYE
November 22: Miami
November 28 (FRIDAY): @ VPISU

The out-of-conference slate parallels the 2013 schedule. With Brett Hundley returning at UCLA, the Bruins could very easily be a top-ten team in the preseason rankings. BYU's 2013 campaign rebounded nicely after their puzzling loss in Charlottesville; playing this game on the road, at altitude, at LaVell Edwards Stadium—where the Cougars went 6–1 in 2013—would be a daunting task for almost any a team. 2014 Kent State is the biggest step back (compared to 2013 Ball State), but Richmond is a major step up for an FCS opponent (compared to VMI).

Turning to the ACC schedule, the highlight is the Friday matchup in Blacksburg. Just in case you weren't already disinclined to drive four hours to sit in the bitter cold among drunk, arrogant rednecks. But Blacksburg is already the WalMart of Virginia (bland, cheap, and filled with crap from Duck Dynasty), so maybe sending everyone there for Black Friday makes some sort of cosmic sense. The last time the Hoos and Hokies squared off on a Friday was 1996.

Getting Louisville early in the season could be a break. The Cardinals will be replacing both QB Teddy Bridgewater and head coach Charlie Strong. The mid-October bye week will be a good chance for the Hoos to get healthy after half the season. The back half of the season looks to be brutal, with four of the six games on the road including at BOTH participants in the 2013 ACC Championship Game.

What say you, Hoos? Are there six wins in this schedule?
