Cavan will meet Tyrone in a double-header at U20 and senior level this Saturday in St Tiernach's Park, Clones.
The Breffni men were pitted against Mickey Harte's side in this morning's round four qualifier draw on RTE radio while John Brady's U20s are through to the last four in the Ulster Championship by virtue of their six-point win over Monaghan at Kingspan Breffni yesterday.
In the other qualifier matches, Galway take on Mayo, Meath meet Clare and Cork face Laois, with the four winners joining the four provincial champions to make up the 'Super 8s'.
Throw-in in the U20 match is at 2.45pm, with the senior game getting underway at 5pm.
Meanwhile, U20 boss John Brady is hopeful that midfielder James Smith, who went off injured against Monaghan, will be fit to play some part.
“We don't think it's that bad, it was just a wee bit of a niggle and we were afraid if he played on any longer it was going to snap so we just had to take him off at that stage,” Brady said.
"Tyrone are probably a bogey team for us at underage as much as anything else. Look, there's no point winning your first-round game and then being happy with your year, you have to go on and believe you can win the next game and I think these lads will have the belief that they can go and compete and hopefully beat Tyrone on the day."
