It’s been a long 15 years but finally, UVA football is victorious over Virginia Tech. The Cavs, built by coach Bronco Mendenhall and led by QB Bryce Perkins beat the Hokies in Scott Stadium advancing to 9-4 and to the Orange Bowl against Miami. The last bowl game UVA played was last year against South Carolina in the Belk Bowl. The Cavs won 28-0.

Before this game, the last Virginia QB to beat the Hokies was Matt Schaub, who is currently the backup for the Atlanta Falcons. While on the topic of Virginia QBs, QB Bryce Perkins went 20/33 with 311 passing yards alongside 3 touchdowns (one passing two rushing) with a season high 164 rushing yards. UVA defense had two interceptions and two recovered fumbles in what may have been the most defense reliant games this year for the Hoos.

The Cavaliers move onto the Orange Bowl against the number nine ranked Florida Gators who are 10-2 on the season with losses to #1 LSU Tigers and #5 Georgia Bulldogs. The game takes place on December 30th, at 8:00 pm in Miami, Florida at Hard Rock Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins. Although the Cavs took a major loss 17-62 to Clemson in the ACC Championship, I believe there’s a chance for the win against Florida, as UVA will have to play their best on all three sides of the ball. Only time will tell as UVA marches onto their final 60 minutes of football in what would be the biggest bowl game of UVA football history. Go Hoos!
