2013: 2-10 (0-8 ACC)
The Cavaliers are an extremely unique spot in college football. Head coach Mike London brings in stacked recruiting classes compared to Virginia’s relative football prowess which is not very strong. This year is no exception as he’s pulled in another top 30 class. There’s just no way the Cavs can be this bad again. Because their two wins last year came against non-major Virginia Military Institute and independent BYU, their last win against a major conference team came November 10, 2012 against Miami. Last year’s QB David Watford threw only 8 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Running back Kevin Parks (1,031 yards) made the best of a bad situation, but only three linemen were drafted in late rounds of the NFL Draft. Sounds like that recruiting hasn’t paid off yet. But they’ve signed four five-star recruits over the last two offseasons so you can bet better football is on the way.
The Virginia Cavaliers are based in Charlottesville, Virginia at the University of Virginia, members of the ACC. Since the team’s first season in 1888, the Cavaliers have had 11 Consensus All-Americans and 3 players that went on to be NFL Hall of Famers. The last bowl appearance that Virginia made was a loss to Auburn in the 2011 Chick-fil-A Bowl, and they’ve made 18 bowl appearances all time. Scott Stadium has been the home of the Cavaliers since 1931 and has an official capacity of 61,500. Virginia also has a number of rivalries with schools including North Carolina and Virginia Tech, a rough in-state rivalry that they have seemingly always trailed in. They also famously took 30 games to finally beat conference rival Clemson. Matt Schaub, Jason Snelling, Chris Canty, Ahmad Brooks, and Branden Albert are some famous Cavaliers in the NFL right now.
