ACC All Access: Despite info accompanying Virginia football season tickets, no U.Va.-Auburn plans yet

For Virginia football season ticket holders who received their 2012 tickets lately, and had their pulses jump when they thought a U.Va.-Auburn meeting in 2015 had been finalized, put the tailgate plans on hold.

A list of tentative non-conference schedules for the '13, '14 and '15 seasons was included in U.Va.'s booklet of season tickets, but the tickets were designed prior to the addition of Pittsburgh and Syracuse to the ACC. With the conference schedule expanding from eight to nine games starting in the fall of '13, non-conference schedules will be adjusted, meaning a tentative U.Va.-Auburn game in '15 listed in the ticket booklet must be disregarded.

U.Va. addressed the list of tentative non-conference games in a statement from executive associate athletic director Jon Oliver released by the athletic department:

"We apologize for any confusion generated as a result of our season ticket brochure listing incorrect opponents in future years. With conference expansion in the ACC and conference realignment for some of our tentative opponents, we are still reviewing our schedule in future years, but our future schedules are not final. With regard to a game against Auburn in future years, there is nothing in place that would have us playing this game in 2015. As we finalize our future non-conference schedules, we will update our website."

Though the U.Va.-Auburn game is a dead issue until further notice, there's perhaps some wiggle room forming on U.Va.'s future non-conference slates.

U.Va. was scheduled to play UT-San Antonio in the '13 and '14 seasons, but those contests no longer appear on U.Va.'s athletic department web page detailing future games. UTSA, which is led by former Miami coach Larry Coker, is beginning its first season in the Western Athletic Conference, but it will move next July to Conference USA.
