Enjoy yourselves, Wahoo fans. Virginia knocked off No. 16 Miami on Saturday night under the lights at Scott Stadium, making it the highest rank upset for the Hoos since beating No. 12 Georgia Tech in 2011. It was the first win over a ranked team since beating No. 21 Louisville in 2014. Students poured onto the field as the clock hit zeros and the score read 16-13 in favor of the good guys, and Virginia fans finally had a big win to celebrate.

In the center of all that commotion were some familiar faces as Kyle Guy, Jack Salt, and other members of the Virginia Basketball team rushed the field to celebrate with their classmates.

Kyle Guy implored fans who attended the Pepsi Blue-White scrimmage earlier in the day to go support the football team, and he clearly puts his money where his tweets are by attending the game himself.
If y’all come to basketball scrimmage I better see all y’all at the football game too!!!! #NEWSTANDARD ... big day for the hoos— Kyle J Guy (@kylejguy5) October 13, 2018
