After playing its last three regular season games on the road and the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, the Virginia football team finally returns to Scott Stadium tonight. Kickoff against William & Mary is set for 8 p.m. on the ACC Network.
The last time Hoo fans saw their team at home came on Nov. 10, 2018 late last season. That game produced a dominant Virginia win against Liberty, with the hosts winning 45-24. With another in-state foe on the schedule to start the 2019 season’s home slate, can the Cavaliers come through with another convincing win? To get a victory, they’ll need to defeat UVA’s former head coach and a long list of former players on the other sidelines. Mike London is the first-year coach of the Tribe and his staff includes six former players (and one other former assistant coach).
As always, TheSabre.com message boards are a good source for information and opinions on the matchup. At least one fan caught the W&M game in person last week. That post and a couple of others give you a fan-level view on the contest with the Tribe. The thread is here.
More from the fans follows in the “Fan Friday” series!
