VIR­GINIA over Ohio U by 11

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 6 1.800.playbook -

The Cava­liers are still look­ing for an iden­tity un­der head coach Bronco Men­den­hall, who is 62-19 SU at home in his ca­reer but only 6-8 SU at Scott Sta­dium since ar­riv­ing in Char­lottesville two years ago. Af­ter rush­ing for 301 yards against Rich­mond in a sea­son-open­ing win, the Cavs man­aged just 294 to­tal yards last week at In­di­ana, but dual threat QB Bryce Perkins ac­counted for 229 of them. Bronco needs this game to get on the plus side of the ledger be­fore en­ter­ing a tough slate: 8 of the next nine games are against foes that had win­ning records last sea­son. Mean­while, the Bob­cats are com­ing off a bye week af­ter be­ing out-yarded 645-425 in a 38-32 win over Howard in the sea­son opener, but things could have been worse. HC Frank Solich yanked start­ing QB Nathan Rourke af­ter a shaky first quar­ter and his re­place­ment, Quin­ton Maxwell, threw for two TDs and ran for two more to en­gi­neer the come­back. Un­for­tu­nately, we just can’t trust the Gree­nies af­ter watch­ing them give up 439 pass­ing to Cam New­ton’s lit­tle brother, Caylin. Even scarier is the fact that MAC teams are

the last thir­teen games against ACC foes. Pass.
