Virginia set to open against Duke
Charlottesville, Va. – When last we saw UVA in competition, they were giving top-ten Florida all they wanted in the Orange Bowl. “It’s kind of a blessing in disguise, I mean all this time before our first game. And thanks to some fortunate scheduling, they’ve been on the field twice-- while UVA hasn’t seen a stitch of game action yet. “I mean, they’ve already had two game like situations and so they already know what playing in the era of Covid is like whereas we don’t,” Cavaliers linebacker Charles Snowden said. The Duke-Virginia kickoff is set for 4 p.m. on Saturday from Charlottesville.
