Virginia looks to stabilize and even regain momentum with an out of conference matchup against Liberty in November.

Here are five storylines from UVA:

  • Virginia and Liberty are meeting for the first time in program history. There are 10 Division I football teams in the Commonwealth of Virginia and after Saturday UVA will have faced six of them. Next season, Old Dominion will come to Scott Stadium, increasing that number to seven.
  • OLB Chris Peace leads the ACC’s linebackers with 6.0 sacks and is tied for No. 7 among the nation’s linebackers. Peace also shares the ACC lead for TFLs by a linebacker with 10.0. He is tied with Miami’s Shaquille Quarterman.
  • HB Olamide Zaccheaus, UVA’s all-time career reception leader, is climbing the ACC’s all-time reception list coming in at No. 14 with 217 career catches. Zaccheaus is also No. 3 among all active FBS players in career receptions, trailing Fresno State’s Keesean Johnson (242) and Duke’s T.J. Rahming (222).
  • Zaccheaus is the only active player in the nation with at least 2,000 career receiving yards (2,416) and 500 career rushing yards (531). There is no other active player that even has 1,500 career receiving yards and 450 career rushing yards.
  • QB Bryce Perkins is responsible for 134 points (16 passing TDs, 6 rushing TDs & 1 Pass 2pt.) which ranks No. 2 in the ACC and No. 21 in the nation.
