MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The Neal Brown era of West Virginia football will begin in sunlight — weather permitting, of course.

The Mountaineers will kick off their 2019 season against FCS opponent James Madison at 2 p.m. on Aug. 31. The game will be televised by AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh. The Dukes are ranked No. 2 in the FCS by Athlon Sports.
