Bryce Hall, Bryce Perkins recognized, Dominic Inglot wins in Basel

Football’s ranked, haven’t you heard?

NCAA Football: North Carolina at Virginia Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

That’s right folks, your Virginia Cavaliers entered the AP Poll yesterday for the first time since the 2011 season, coming in at number 23. The ranking appearance came after the Hoos’ victory over the North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday, 31-21. In the third quarter of the game, senior Olamide Zaccheaus became the the all-time Virginia leader in receptions by catching the 211th pass of his career.

Elsewhere in the UVA sporting world, we broke down men’s basketball’s ACC schedule and listed our top five frontcourts in the conference. Here’s what else you might have missed from over the weekend:

Something we’ve grown accustomed to this season is Bryce Hall’s excellence at the cornerback position. In last weekend’s game against UNC, the junior, once again, did not disappoint, earning the best coverage grade of any cornerback in the conference. His lockdown ability continues to beg the question: why do quarterbacks keep throwing in his direction?

The college division of Pro Football Focus named Hall to their National Defense Team of the Week for his efforts.

PFF also highlighted quarterback Bryce Perkins, who had himself a nice day against the Tar Heels. Perkins, when kept clean by his offensive line, completed 16 of his 19 pass attempts and tallied two touchdowns.

Former Virginia men’s tennis player Dominic Inglot captured the double’s title at Basel’s Swiss Indoors professional event. Inglot, who paired up with Croatia’s Franko Skugor, bested brothers Mischa and Alexander Zverev 6-2, 7-5 in the final.

TOTD:

Well, would you look at that.
