CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WSET) - It's getting close to bowl time for the Hokies and Cavaliers. Virginia Tech faces Cincinnati in the Military Bowl on New Year's Eve.
The Cavaliers, who lost in overtime to the Hokies their last game the day after Thanksgiving, play South Carolina in the Belk Bowl in Charlotte two weeks from this Saturday. With a victory, the Cavs could finish 8-and-5 and win their first postseason game since the Music City Bowl in 2005.
Bronco Mendenhall, VIRGINIA HEAD COACH (CAVS 7-5 THIS YEAR), said "They have some really innovative schemes, especially offensively and they go at NASCAR tempo, they go fast."
Chris Peace, VIRGINIA SENIOR OUTSIDE LINEBACKER, said "Physical up front, everybody's got to bring their big-boy pants, you know. It's definitely not a team to sleep on."
