After a tough 2013 season, the Virginia Cavaliers are much-improved this year, posting victories over Richmond and Louisville and putting up a fight against two ranked opponents – UCLA and BYU. Saturday, UVA will be honoring one of its most successful teams – the squad from 1968 that featured star running back Frank Quayle, the ACC Player of the Year that season.
