Here's your full preview.

Virginia is officially having their best season ever, and will look to make history once again today when they travel to Louisville and try to become the first team to ever finish with 17 regular season conference wins. Though this record was only made possible through recent conference expansion, you really can't take away anything from a team that could say that they went 17-1 in ACC play.

Virginia could also look to finish with an undefeated road record for the first time since 1915, when the Hoos went 2-0 on the road.

Remember, if Virginia holds them to under 50 today, those of us who made the pledge will be donating once again to the One Love Foundation! Read more about the Pack Line Pledge here. It's never too late to join!
