George Washington and Virginia Agree on Two Year Series

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Virginia continues to visit strong mid-major programs with their latest scheduling agreement with George Washington.

Tony Bennett and the Virginia Cavaliers have not shied away from playing at quality mid-major arenas and it seems as if they'll continue to do so signing a two year deal with the George Washington Colonials. In a statement from the school Colonials' head coach Mike Lonergan said:

"Our goal is to play a schedule that is challenging and puts us in a position for a berth to the NCAA Tournament every season. t's going to be an exciting regional rivalry for our players, students, alumni and fans."

The first game will take place this November 21 in Virginia's John Paul Jones Arena. The Wahoos will then travel to the Charles E. Smith Center on November 15, 2015.  This will be the first meeting between the two teams since the 2004 NIT.

Virginia has run into some trouble recently visiting mid-major venues, in 2012 they fell at George Mason 63-59 and last year they lost at Green Bay 75-72. The Cavaliers are slated to visit VCU's Siegel Center this upcoming year, finishing off a home and home series with the Rams.
