Today, Virginia takes on a Miami team that was once ranked as high as No. 15 in the country, but who have since fallen on hard times, after losing three of its past five games to the likes of Green Bay, Eastern Kentucky and Providence.

The Hoos, of course, are off to a perfect 12-0 start after non-conference play. Though the Hoos have not had a complete cupcake out-of-conference schedule, they only faced one ranked opponent, so as ACC play opens up, Virginia fans should get a better sense of just where the team stands.

We did a Q&A with SB Nation's State of the U which was helpful. There you'll find our responses to their questions as well.
