That place isn't likely to be Morgantown. Luck has three non-conference openings to fill on future schedules and wants "two of those three opponents to be from what we're calling the power five conference schools," he said.
"I want those power five conference schools to be close, our old regional rivals," Luck added. "Maryland certainly qualifies in that category, the Virginia Tech series is back on and we'll shortly have an announcement about Penn State."
The Virginia Tech-WVU series is scheduled for September 2021 and September 2022. Luck doesn't have an opening until 2017.
"We've had some very thorough discussions with U.Va. and Pitt," he said. "We've reached out to a few other neighboring state schools or close by state schools in the so-called power five.
"I'm not sure we'll have anybody on every year. It will be a rotating system between those old rival schools."
How Luck fills the final spot on the schedule each year depends on how the new playoff system evolves. There may be no value in playing a lower-tier opponent from college football's Championship Subdivision.
Luck wouldn't mind seeing more games at so-called neutral sites like this Saturday's game in Baltimore. WVU is scheduled to open next season against Alabama in Atlanta and will play Brigham Young on Sept. 24, 2016 at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.
"The one thing that has changed in the three years that I have been here is how attractive these neutral site games have become," Luck said. "They're usually in the first two weeks of the season and they're almost like bowl games at the beginning of the year."
Don't be stunned if WVU signs on for more of those games in the latter part of the decade and beyond ... as long as the opponents fit the criteria.
"We're staying in touch with the old gang," Luck said. "We're embracing our new conference-mates, but we want to stay in touch with schools that have meant a lot to us."
