Virginia hopes experience helps slow triple-option

Virginia has put a hard loss against North Carolina in which the Cavaliers stumbled badly at the finish behind them and is taking aim again at its goal of winning the ACC championship.. ''That was one of those games that hurt right down to your soul,'' senior linebacker Henry Coley said of last week's 28-27 defeat in which Virginia self-destructed at the end...

Virginia set to host North Carolina in ACC matchup

The numbers suggest Virginia could find a cure for its offensive inconsistency on Saturday. That's when the Cavaliers (4-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) hosts North Carolina, which according to statistics has one of the porous defenses in the country. Virginia struggled last week in a 20-13 loss at Duke, but it's best to look beyond the numbers before expecting a cure-all...

Cavaliers eager to erase bad Duke memories

Virginia linebacker Max Valles and his teammates don't have fond memories of last season's game against Duke. The Cavaliers built a 22-0 lead in the first half, then folded in an embarrassing 35-22 loss. Virginia (4-2, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) hopes things will be different when it plays at Duke on Saturday. The Blue Devils (5-1, 1-1) have won five of the last meetings...

Virginia Football rolls through a Pitt stop

When you have a crappy football team (or any kind of crappy team, I guess) the smallest things turn into "not since" stats.  This past basketball season was crammed to the gills with not-since stats, and most of them ended up being Ralph Sampson-related.  Now it's football's turn.  Baby steps first - did you know, the last time UVA was 2-0 in the ACC was 2009?  Frightening, because...

Running games in focus as Pitt visits Virginia

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Virginia is taking a ''why not us?'' approach in what appears to be a wide-open ACC Coastal Division race. The Cavaliers (3-2, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) share the lead in the Coastal Division standings with Georgia Tech and Pittsburgh. Coach Mike London said they see Saturday night's visit from the Panthers (3-2, 1-0) as an opportunity...

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Matt Johns overcame two early interceptions and threw for two touchdowns and ran for one Saturday as Virginia pulled away after halftime to beat Kent State 45-13.

Cavaliers at crossroads against Golden Flashes

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Virginia's football season has already come to a crossroads of sorts. The Cavaliers (2-2) have split their first four games in each of the past four seasons, and when they play Kent State (0-3) on Saturday, their goal is to show that this season is much different. Virginia never won again after a 2-1 start last season, and their nine consecutive losses...

Virginia has come a long way, but has a way to go

I think we learned two simple things this Saturday: How far we've come, and how far we have to go.  Dare we say, the Hoos looked better losing this weekend than they did beating BYU last year.  That's a very offense-centric point of view (the defense was a little less than completely suffocating), but then, we've long known what has to get better before anything good...

Cavs' kicker plays after father's heart attack

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Virginia placekicker Ian Frye was feeling pretty good as he headed for the locker room in Saturday's road game at BYU. His 22-yard field goal on the final play of the first half was his third in as many tries and had given the Cavaliers a 16-13 lead against the No. 20 Cougars. Then as he was leaving the field, Frye saw his mother moving down the stands...

Virginia runs 102 plays for 519 yards in loss to No. 21 BYU

Despite Virginia running a program-record 102 plays for an impressive 519 yards, and BYU committing 12 penalties for an eye-popping 133 yards, the Cavaliers were unable to pull the upset over the 21st-ranked Cougars. BYU recovers the onside kick and takes a knee to close out the game. UVa falls 41-33 to BYU. #UVAvsBYU pic.twitter.com/K2Whs6Qz21 — Virginia Football (@UVa_Football...

Virginia vs. BYU: Game Preview

Last year's win set a great tone for the season: very solid defense and enough capitalizing on opponent mistakes to come away with a win.  Afterwards, of course: thbpt.  Winning that game led our thoughts completely astray, and it was two more months before the ugly truth truly sank in.  This year, the positive feelings from a win are a lot less likely to be phony; it...

Virginia tries to maintain edge vs. No. 21 BYU

With No. 21 BYU up next, the Cavaliers senior co-captain Coley gave his teammates about 20 hours to celebrate their second consecutive victory, then he reached out to coach Mike London to set...

Virginia cites unity for new resolve, improvement

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) It started with cookouts over the summer, and trips to the movies. Players at Virginia on opposite sides of the ball who almost never talked were purposely put together with the idea that the more unified they got as friends and teammates across the board, the more it would benefit the team. So far, the Cavaliers (1-1) say it is paying off, and they view...

Bobby Petrino Says His Team Will Be Challenged At Virginia On Saturday

Photo: Pete Cautilli Heading into the 2014 season, Virginia was thought to be the one of the weaker conference opponents on Louisville’s schedule. That still may be the case, but teams in the ACC shouldn’t be taking the Cavaliers as lightly as they were two weeks ago. Virginia is just 1-1 on the season, but their one loss came against UCLA, who was ranked in the top ten at that...

Virginia performs predictably against Richmond

Sweeping narratives about the just-completed game are usually the order of the day on a Sunday, but this was Richmond and absolutely nothing took place that hasn't been foreseen in the last few months.  So, let's try a position paper instead. To tell the truth, there's no way to tell from the statistics of two games whether Greyson Lambert or Matt Johns should be the...
