virginia backed out of game with penn state this year. this had nothing to do with penn state. for uva, it was their choice as they wanted another home game on their schedule. penn state obliged, and have unofficially scheduled a home and home with UCF starting in 2013 at State College.
O'Leary has a lot of ties to PSU coaches, most notably O'Brien, and BOB looks at this as a chance to bring his kids down to Florida in 2014 for a change of scenery from east/midwest cities.
Both UVA and PSU are looking at rescheduling the game in the future at Penn State once the revamped big 10 schedules have been determined.
*The 2014 Rutgers/PSU game was bumped for this PSU/UCF game as well, though Rutgers/PSU game will be played anyway since Rutgers will be part of Big 10, just different time.
