As the Virginia football team approaches kickoff next week, fans surely are starting to plan out their schedules to attend games. The Hoos open at Pittsburgh on August 31 and then play at home the following Friday night against William & Mary. They’ll play a total of five games, including three straight at home, in August and September.

For many fans, the plans to attend games requires finding tickets on the secondary market. The Sabre is now providing links as a StubHub affiliate so if you’re in that boat, please use the links on the site to click through to StubHub and buy tickets.
