Rece Davis and the College Gameday crew threw down the gauntlet earlier this week. They challenged the UVa faithful to put on a show similar to last year's Gameday visit. Judging from the social media and twitter reactions, Hoo fans answered the call.
It started out in the early morning with hundreds, maybe even thousands of fans wrapping the line to get in to gameday around the block!

Even the football staff wanted to get out and do some good, handing out doughnuts to the students who will support them this fall!

Even the Hullabahoos got some love
Of course Cavman had to make it all about him at some point. Luckily he's been doing pushups
