Rashawn Jackson was injured on the first play from scrimmage Saturday

Clearly the loss of Cedric Peerman was evident as the Virginia running game was fairly pedestrian Saturday. The loss of Rashawn Jackson early in the game didn’t help matters. The quarterbacks delivered another consistent performance (not to suggest superior), but we’ve come to know what to expect. The return operation continues to be an issue for the special teams with poor decisions, turnovers and most discouraging, poor production. There was improvement in the coverage operation but another hiccup in the placement aspect cost Virginia valuable points late in the game. The big hitter this week was the defense that not only scored high marks for overall play but particularly high scores for red zone defense.
