Winning games in a coach’s first season is hard – only one Virginia coach has achieved a winning season in year one since 1930.
Virginia fell to No. 15 North Carolina in the South’s Oldest Rivalry Saturday, and now will look to bounce back at home against a Pittsburgh team that lost to the same team just one week prior.
Despite playing one of their most complete games so far under first-year Coach Tony Elliott, the Cavaliers couldn't quite manage to topple the surging Tar Heels.
After picking up the first conference win of Coach Tony Elliott’s career, Virginia will try to pick up a second straight win over Miami at Scott Stadium Saturday.
In an ugly game in Atlanta, the Cavaliers bested the Yellow Jackets 16-9 for their first conference win.
After the first quarter, Virginia was outgained 439 yards to 175 and converted just one third down.
A year after being one of the top scoring teams in the country, the Cavalier offense has been downright dysfunctional during the team’s 2-2 start, averaging 18.2 points per game – 116th in the country.
The Cavaliers nearly weathered three missed kicks from two different kickers, a poor performance from senior quarterback Brennan Armstrong, but the Orange proved too strong.
