Well, that was a pleasant Saturday afternoon. Delightful pre-autumn Charlottesville weather, a good tailgate with great friends, and a solid Virginia win that gets UVa halfway to bowl eligibility.
There was a lot to like about Virginia’s 27-3 win against the Louisville Cardinals. I would submit that the most encouraging thing about Virginia’s win was that the Cavaliers played a far from the flawless game and still won going away. While 27-3 sounds like a pretty thorough thrashing, the truth is, the game could and should have been an even more convincing beatdown.
