The big Duke game is this week. Can you feel the excitement? Me either, but this game is important in its own way. From The Sabre's game preview:
This is also a match-up of the only two teams in the ACC that did not make a bowl game last year, and this Saturday's game is vital to both teams' hopes for bowl eligibility this season. Duke sits at 4-3 overall, and Virginia at 3-4; both teams have four games remaining after this one, including two on the road and one at home against a ranked opponent. Both teams also sit at 2-1 in conference play - with no remaining undefeated teams in the ACC, a win would keep either team in contention.
I'm trying to forget that Duke embarrassed the Hoos last year, 31-3. What a disaster that was. Surely that can't happen again, right? Right?
Anyway, go read the in-depth preview linked above. Also check out From Old Virginia's preview, and The Sabre's injury report for this game. It's time to get pumped up for Virginia/Duke on the gridiron!!!
