Last Meeting: First Meeting

Virginia is on fire, flying up the rankings after a series of top-10 upsets last week aligned perfectly with the Hoos' convincing victories over then-14th ranked West Virginia and then-No. 12 Villanova. Virginia will look to continue to streak as they play host to Cal, who was ranked as high as a top-15 team earlier this season before back-to-back bad losses to San Diego State and Richmond at the Las Vegas Invitational set them back.

Vegas opened with Virginia as 15-point favorites before settling down at 12. Tonight's matchup vs. Cal and next week's contest vs. Oakland will be the last two "tune-up" games before Virginia's conference schedule begins.

In the meantime, leave your pre-, in- and post-game thoughts here, and GO HOOS!
