Hoos are 1-1 and can boast that they have THREE QBs! Pssshhh, you and your "one QB system!" This week they take on them newcomers Loueyville! Let's see how things play out!

Mike London hopes to win his first ACC game since the Korean War this weekend when Louisville comes to town.

Last weekend, UVa welcomed bitter in-state rival, Richmond! GRRRRR, that D1-AA powerhouse! Luckily, Coach London was able to lead the team to his first victory in nearly a year!

Unfortunately, Louisville is pretty good. They're 2-0 this year thanks to playing the great Racers of Murray State! Also unfortunately, UVa's head coach is still Mike London and nobody knows who their QB is. Matt Johns? Greyson Lambert? David Watford? Vic Hall? Jameel Sewell?

Louisville wins the toss and defers. After not starting last week, Matt Johns takes the field in the opening series to everyone's surprise.

Johns comes out and instead of having the benefit of an open playbook, Fairchild calls a screen, a dive, and another screen. UVa promptly punts. Louisville takes the ball and drives down for a TD. UVa trails 7-0 early.

Thanks to a stout defense, and an average offense, the Hoos keep it close heading to half. Only down 17-14, nobody really knows how to react to a close game with a ranked opponent.

Louisville gets the ball back at the half trying to increase their lead. After getting two first downs, the defense forces an interception giving the back to the Cavaliers in the Cardinals territory. Lambert comes out, throws a strike over the middle, the wideout breaks two tackles, and gets into the endzone giving UVa the lead!!!

UVa defense holds pat again and UVa increases their lead yet again. Louisville fans at Scott don't know what to think. Louisville fans in Kentucky don't know what's going on! THIS DIDN'T HAPPEN WHEN WE PLAYED IN THE AAC! WHAT THE HELL

Coming down the stretch the Hoos only lead by 6. Louisville has the ball and is driving in what looks to be a game winning TD drive. UVa fans feel it coming. Once again, UVa will snatch a loss from the jaws of victory yet again. Mike London will be 1-2 heading to Mormon country next week :-(. UNTIL THE DEFENSE FORCES A FUMBLE! UVA TAKES THE BALL! DAVID WATFORD (huh?) GETS INTO THE VICTORY FORMATION AND ICES THE GAME! UVA WINS!!!!!!
