Editor notes: We normally give greater weight (60-40%) to the statistical grades vs. the subjective but this week we have reversed the percentage to give our readers (who are solely responsibly for the subjective grades) a greater say in the overall final grade.


Overall Grade: 76.63 (C)


QB Jameel Sewell led the team in rushing for the second time this season with 47 yards. He also led with 66 yards vs. UConn.

Sewell passed for 225 yards, his third game in a row with more than 200 yards, to become the first UVa QB to throw for 200 or more yards in three straight games since Marques Hagans in 2004 (Syracuse, Clemson, Florida State).

Virginia did not give up a quarterback sack for the first time since the Pittsburgh game, five games ago.

UVa wideout Maurice Covington recorded the first TD catch of his career on a 39-yard play in the second quarter. It was also the longest reception of his career, the longest reception by a UVa wideout this year, and the second longest reception by a Cavalier this year.

Covington had 55 receiving yards in the first half, which is 10 more than his previous high for a single-game (45 vs. N.C. State in 2007 and 45 vs. Temple in 2005). He finished with 76 receiving yards, tying Chris Gorham (UConn) for the most by a UVa wide receiver in a game this season.

Virginia rushed for 82 yards, the first time UVa won with fewer than 100 yards since the Wyoming game last season (32 yards).

Red Zone Efficiency: 50 (F-)

Virginia was 1 for 3 in the red zone (33%) and scored just seven of a possible 21 points (33%).

When there is something wrong and it doesn’t look good who are you going to call? Jameel Sewell , foe buster.

While going 20-for-43, Virginia’s quarterback was erratic most of the day against the defending ACC Champions
