UVa Set to Host #3 Oregon Saturday

Posted:

Charlottesville -  When number 3 Oregon plays at UVa this Saturday, the Ducks will be just the third top-3 ranked non-conference team to play in Charlottesville, the other two were Southern Cal in 2008 and North Carolina Pre-Flight in 1944, led by quarterback Otto Graham.  There's a great trivia question.

Mike London says everyone on Oregon seems to have elite speed, even the guy who gets the tee after the kickoff.  This will be Oregon's first-ever trip to an ACC stadium and first time playing in the state of Virginia.  The Cavs are 0-and-3 all-time against the Pac 12, 2-17-and-1 all-time against top-5 teams. 

Mike London, 1ST UVA COACH TO WIN FIRST 4 OPENERS, said "You know our mindset has to be one of, you know, we're playing in our place, we've got to bring energy and passion because we know they're an excellent football team.  But instead of asking why, then we ask why not."

Morgan Moses, UVA SENIOR OFF. TACKLE, said "We know they've got good uniforms, but at the end of the day they put their pads on just like us."
