Virginia will host the University of Delaware in a non-conference football matchup on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2026, at Scott Stadium. It will mark the first ever meeting between the two schools.

The Blue Hens start their two-year transition to FBS in 2024. Delaware will officially join Conference USA on July 1, 2025 and will be full FBS members for the 2026 season.

Including Delaware, Virginia has three non-conference games scheduled for the 2026 season – Oct. 17 at Notre Dame and home against Norfolk State on Nov. 21.
