Coach Tommy Tuberville's Tigers finished the 2007 season with a 23-20 Chick-fil-A Bowl victory over Clemson on New Year's Eve.
"This move will give us a great opportunity to receive the national spotlight on ESPN on a Thursday night," Tuberville said. "We want to make our schedule as competitive as anybody, and playing an outstanding non-conference opponent like West Virginia will do just that."
Tuberville's team is scheduled to begin spring practice on Feb. 29th and the A-Day Game is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday, March 29th at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
The Tigers have played seven Thursday night games and won six, including the last one, a 24-17 victory at South Carolina in 2006.
