WVU to play BYU at FedEx Field in 2016, how the hell are we going to fill 91k seats?

Just in from Head Coach Bill Stewart’s twitter feed, West Virginia will play BYU at Fed Ex Field in DC in 2016. Its a pretty ballsy move for both universities, playing a neutral game far away from home in a stadium that could fit the population of Monongalia County and still have empty seats.

I like the move, its better than putting another FCS or CUSA team on the docket, I’m just curious how in the world they are going to sell out that stadium. There are tons of Mormons everywhere, and WVU has a nice alumni base in the DC area, but I just don’t see filling 91k seats for the match up. We have 6 years to sell those tix, so lets get at it!
