The .gif preview took a week long hiatus to attend a wedding last week, but we're back with force! The Cavaliers didn't need us as they were able to dispatch with Kent State easily (bravo! MACtion!). This week though, there is a white out (with black[ish] helmets) and the Hoos welcome another ACC foe to Scott! BRING IT ON WILDCATS!

Quick preview of Pitt: they thought they were in the Big East still so they beat BC then lost to decent opponents Iowa and Akron (lululullllz)!

Hoos take the field in all their (almost) Storm Trooper glory! The capacity crowd of 66% full Scott Stadium goes wild!

Pitt wins the toss and defers to the second half. Lambert leads the Cavaliers onto the field. Pitt crowds the box knowing he's a little wobbly. What does our mastermind of an OC do? Three straight handoffs up the middle.

Luckily the Pitt offense didn't have much success against the Iowa or Akron defenses and have no idea what to do with a defense like UVa's. Their QB gets the call from the sidleline, looks across the line of scrimmage, and then looks back at the sideline....

This back and forth goes on for some time. UVa opens up the playbook a bit which gives them two scoring drives leading to field goals! Yay! Lambert also throws a pick 6 giving Pitt the lead going into halftime.

The second half goes significantly better for the Hoos as they're able to impose their will on the Pitt defense and the all-white (and black helmet) brigade lead by Eli Harold forces turnovers and three and outs.

Hoos take the ball with the lead late in the game. Lambert looks like Matt Schaub leading his white-uniformed (and black helmet) soldiers down the field for a game clinching touchdown! Hoos win! Leung has to eat another Meat Mountian! I DONT KNOW THE LAST TIME I HAD CONFIDENCE IN UVA FOOTBALL! Littlepage starts drafting up another Mike London extension! :-(
