You know what we spent most of Saturday night doing? Drinking celebratory beverages in a responsible fashion and watching highlights reels in an irresponsible fashion. After a big win — one that clinches bowl game eligibility for the first time since 2011 — all you can do is relive the best Virginia Cavaliers moments of the day.
VirginiaSportsTV always puts out one of the best highlights reels, and that’s where we’ll start.
Tears all around for Bronco Mendenhall and company, who have seen tremendous growth in the team, both physically and mentally, in just a season and a half.
The ACC Digital Network put together a pretty strong set of highlights as well.
If you got into the stadium a little bit late, boy did you miss a heck of a kickoff return from Virginia’s Joe Reed to get the Hoos deep into Georgia Tech territory to start the day out right. More on that later, but how about a 92-yard kickoff return for a touch down? Now we’re talking, special teams!
It took under two minutes for Virginia to secure the game-winning touchdown after Georgia Tech tried to put the ball game away with their final touchdown of the day with 3:10 to play. And it was a heck of a catch by Andre Levrone, too.
Can’t get enough? Here’s a bonus video -- the entire game compressed into just under 18 minutes. Enjoy, and you’re welcome.
