Virginia quarterback Bryce Perkins has had a record year, ranking second in total yardage in the ACC at 276.2 yards per game, despite having faced several injuries throughout the season. Perkins dislocated a finger in the conference opener against Louisville and, in the first quarter at Georgia Tech, hurt his left ankle.
