When the Backyard Brawl returns in a couple of years, there will be a lot of "early" trash talking among fans.

West Virginia University announced in a news release Tuesday that the football game between the Mountaineers and the Pitt Panthers, originally scheduled for Sept. 17, 2022, has been moved to Sept. 1 for that year and will be the season opener for both schools.

The game will be played at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Games will be played in 2022 and 2024 in Pittsburgh and in Morgantown in 2023 and 2025.
