Virginia Form


Virginia head to Hard Rock Stadium with a 2-2 record through the first four weeks of the season.

The Cavaliers shut out William & Mary 43-0 in their season opener before rolling over Illinois, 42-14.

Their run was halted by a 59-39 defeat to #21 North Carolina but the offense did catch the eye.

The defense was lit up though and did not fare much better a week later in a 37-17 defeat to Wake Forest.

QB Brennan Armstrong has been airing it out through four games. He has 1,705 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions off 180 attempts.

Dontayvion Wicks has been a popular target, hauling in 22 catches for 460 yards and four TDs.

Billy Kemp and Jelani Woods have three receiving TDs and five players now have 224 yards or more.

On the ground Virginia have shared the load with five players in double figures for carries. QB Armstrong has 48 yards and two TDs. Wayne Taulapapa has 81 yards and a score.

Miami (FL) Form


Pressure is building on Miami head coach Manny Diaz despite last weekend’s blowout win.

The Hurricanes offered nothing as they were destroyed by Alabama on opening night, 44-13.

They scraped past Appalachian State, 25-23, in their second outing, but their slide down the rankings continued.

Miami were well beaten by Michigan State, 38-17, a week later before winning a one-sided meeting with Central Connecticut State, 69-0.

QB D’Eriq King sat out last weekend’s win. He has struggled early, throwing for 767 yards, three touchdowns and four picks through three games.

Cam’Ron Harris had a big day last weekend and will look to build on that here. He has 391 all-purpose yards and four TDs.

Charleston Rambo has been a major bright spot on the offence. The wide receiver has hauled in 26 catches for 287 yards and a couple of TDs.
