The Hoos have not lost a game at home since 2018 and fans are hoping that streak stays in place after this weekend’s game against NC State.
Athalon Sports has a great breakdown preview of the game.
“Virginia (1-1) hasn’t lost at Scott Stadium since a 23-13 loss to the Pitt Panthers on Nov. 2, 2018. Last weekend, the Cavaliers played the Clemson Tigers tough but ultimately loss 41-23 on the road. The Cavaliers opened their season with a convincing 38-20 victory over the Duke Blue Devils on Sept. 26.
“Against Pittsburgh, NC State redshirt sophomore quarterback Devin Leary made his first start of the season, and he was the catalyst on the team’s game-winning drive. Leary drove the Wolfpack 79 yards in eight plays as he completed a 13-yard touchdown to Emeka Emezie with 23 seconds left to upset the previously unbeaten Panthers.“

“Staff meetings are remote, even as the principals work from adjacent offices. Team gatherings are reserved for the indoor practice complex, with the elephant doors open to maximize ventilation.”
UVA and NC State play at noon on Saturday. The game can be streamed on the ACC Network.
