In case you somehow missed it, the Virginia Cavaliers are bowl eligible following their 40-36 win over Georgia Tech. The Hoos celebrated in their locker room:
For senior defenders Quin Blanding and Micah Kiser, the win was extra sweet as they became bowl eligible for the first times in their careers, and after they both decided to return to UVA for their final seasons.
After going 2-10 in his first season, Bronco Mendenhall is excited for his squad.
Bronco: "I am very, very happy and proud of my team. They fought hard and they played hard today from the beginning to the end. It could of really gone either way, but each time they came back. They've earned the chance to play."— Virginia Football (@UVa_Football) November 4, 2017
Bronco: "I'm not sure there's anything that feels better than this right now. We've tried really hard for a year and a half just to be noticed. They have a special place in my heart and they've earned that. I'm lucky to work with them."— Virginia Football (@UVa_Football) November 4, 2017
The Hoos have a chance to improve their record again next week as they hit the road for Louisville. WAHOOWA!!
