Cavaliers bowl eligible for the first time since 2007
- by Doug Samuels 2 years ago
Virginia notched their sixth win of the season against Maryland on Saturday, making them bowl eligible for the first time since 2007.
The last time (2007) that the Cavaliers earned bowl eligibility was also against Randy Edsall, while he was at Connecticut.
Mike London's team was impressive on both sides of the ball, putting up their best offensive performance of the season with 527 yards of total offense, 220 coming on the ground. With a field goal in the first quarter, the Terps became only the second team in 9 games to score in first quarter against UVA. Virginia has now given up a total of 10 points in the first quarter through those nine games, tied with Stanford for best in the country.
The 6-3 Cavaliers will take on Duke Saturday and wrap up the season against Florida State and Virginia Tech. Mike London and his guys have to be pleased with how this season is progressing.
