Cavalier Football Notes: Wake Forest
Virginia (2-2) at Wake Forest (2-2)
Saturday, Sept. 28
VIRGINIA SEEKS FIRST ROAD WIN: Virginia has won its last two games and has some momentum going into this week’s game at Wake Forest. With a win over Wake Forest, the Cavaliers would have their first three-game winning streak in a year.
LAST WEEK: Virginia’s Matt Schaub passed for five touchdowns to guide the Cavaliers to a 48-29 win over Akron last Saturday in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers averaged more than two points per minute of possession in defeating the Zips. Art Thomas gave Virginia a big boost with a 42-yard interception return late in the third quarter just as Akron was gaining momentum.
Wake Forest evened its record at 2-2 with an impressive 24-21 win at Purdue on Saturday. The Demon Deacons ground out 248 yards rushing and capitalized on five turnovers to become just the second unranked team to win in West Lafayette since 1997.
The Deacs ended Virginia’s 17-game series winning streak with a 34-30 win in Charlottesville last season. This is the first time since 1999 that both teams come into the game with .500-or-better records.
