Virginia enters the game with a 2-0-0 record after topping Syracuse 6-0 and Liberty 1-0 over the weekend. Caitlin Miskel and Jen Redmond are tied for the team lead in scoring with two goals and an assist a piece. The Cavalier defense has posted shutouts in the first two games, allowing just two shots, none on goal, this season.

Wednesday’s game is the third all-time meeting between the schools with Virginia having a 1-0-1 edge in the series. The teams have not met since 1998, a 1-1 tie in Richmond. In 1996, the Cavaliers topped the Rams 5-0 at Klöckner Stadium. VCU played in Charlottesville two years ago, as they fell to Duke in a first round NCAA Tournament game at Klöckner.
