Getting ready for Duke

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!!!
