WVU releases non-conference schedule

West Virginia unveiled its non-conference schedule for the 2014-15 season Thursday.

The schedule is highlighted by six home games in Morgantown, including matchups against LSU and Virginia Tech at the Coliseum.

West Virginia will start the season with an exhibition against Shepherd Nov. 9 before opening the regular season five days later against Monmouth. The Mountaineers will face Lafayette at home before heading to play in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off to play three games. Although that bracket has yet to be announced, the field includes Boston College, College of Charleston, Connecticut, Dayton, George Mason, New Mexico and Texas A&M.

Another highlight of the schedule is WVU's return to New York to play at Madison Square Garden against North Carolina State as part of the Gotham Classic.

"We always strive to play one of the top schedules in the country and this year will be no different,” said WVU head coach Bob Huggins in a release. “This is a schedule our fans will enjoy, particularly with eight non-conference games in our great state, along with return visits to Puerto Rico and Madison Square Garden.”

In addition to the six games in Morgantown, West Virginia will also take on VMI and Marshall in Charleston on Nov. 26 and Dec. 14, respectively.

WVU's Big 12 Conference schedule is expected to be released in the next few weeks.
