Men's soccer takes 27th straight win over Hokies

Crawford recognized for community service

Casey Crawford did not get to contribute to Saturday's 35-7 win against Wake Forest, but the Virginia tight end got some good news yesterday. Crawford has not played this season because of the hernia surgery he had this summer, but he was one of 11 Division I-A football players to be named to the 1999 American Football Coaches Association Good Works Team.

Feterik upholds BYU quarterback legacy

Robbie Bosco knows all too well what it feels like to be Kevin Feterik - to live every second of every Saturday in a pressure cooker. That's because Bosco, a former Brigham Young quarterback who led the Cougars to the national championship in 1984, was in Feterik's position, right under center, 11 years before Feterik arrived in Provo, Utah. So that may explain why, instead of advertising his protégé like a garage sale, Bosco, who now coaches the BYU signal callers, pulled his prodigy aside for a stern dose of reality.

Tonight in the cozy confines of Klockner Stadium, the No. 16 Virginia men's soccer team (3-2-1, 0-1-1 ACC) looks to return to their top form against a Virginia Tech (4-2) squad it has owned in the recent past. "Virginia has usually dominated the series, but it's always a big game for us," Virginia Tech men's soccer coach Jerry Cheynet said.
