Yesterday we brought you more football coverage with STL’s Bowl Watch Week 4 and a look at ‘Hoos in the NFL. With Virginia’s first ACC game approaching against Louisville, here’s what you might have missed about the Cavaliers elsewhere Around the Corner.
After setting a school record with 247 receiving yards on Saturday against Ohio, the senior wide receiver is ready for conference contests to begin this weekend when Virginia hosts a new-look Louisville without Lamar Jackson. Finding motivation in his sub-par performance against Indiana, Zaccheaus now has his sights set on ending his college career with a historic season for Virginia.
The Eagles’ SB Nation site gave Zaccheaus a shoutout after his standout performance against the Bobcats. Ohio State DT Dre’Mont Jones got author Ben Natan’s other nod this week for his performance against TCU.
Doug Doughty takes a stab at deciding whether or not last weekend’s Week 3 win was worth the $650,000 payout to Ohio plus the teams’ travel expenses, etc. Totaling over $1 million, how much did the Cavaliers get for their money?
The long-awaited debut of DE Dylan Thompson, the graduate transfer from Ohio State, could be happening this weekend, per Mike Barber of the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The one and only Tony Bennett hopped on Jon Rothstein’s podcast to talk ‘Hoos hoops. Definitely worth the listen if you’re a podcast person, or if you just like Tony Bennett. Both valid.
