According to WOAY Sports, Bob Huggins and Press Virginia will be traveling to Beckley to play an exhibition game against the WVU Tech Golden Bears.

Per the report, the game will be played October 29th at the Beckley Raleigh County Convention Center.

West Virginia has played four regular season games in Beckley, their last trip coming in 1969.
