Cavaliers Show They Can Compete With Tigers

No. 1 Clemson 41, Virginia 23: One of those banners you see hanging in many classrooms says something like, “Shoot for the moon, and you’ll land among the stars.” Virginia did that Saturday at Clemson, but it had a chance to be right next to the moon. Less than a

Sending the Hurricanes Back to Miami

A winless Miami team, one that had yet to score a goal on the year, came to Charlottesville to take on what looked at times like Virginia’s second team. Diana Ordonez did not play; neither did first-off-the-bench Ashlynn Serepca and Laney Rouse. Would Miami be able snag an upset?
