Virginia Ends Regular Season With Two at Home The Cavaliers play the first of two consecutive home games starting with this Saturday’s match-up against Georgia Tech. This is Virginia’s final ACC contest as the Cavaliers seek a win to become bowl eligible and finish with a 4-4 league record.
Virginia is locked in a tie with Wake Forest for sixth in the league with 3-4 conference records, while the Yellow Jackets have caught fire recently winning five of their last six. They are locked in a three-way tie with Maryland and N.C. State for third in the league with 4-3 records.
The seasons for both teams have progressed in opposite directions. The Cavaliers won four of their first five, but have since lost four of five. Conversely, Georgia Tech got off to a 1-3 start, but following a 39-3 loss at home to Clemson the Yellow Jackets reeled off four straight wins. They have won five of their last six.
Home games have been good for Virginia under Al Groh and especially so in November (and December). The Cavaliers are 13-4 at home in Groh?s three years, including a 4-0 mark in November (and one December home game).
