Of the many positives to come out of this weekend's game, Ron Counts of The Daily Progress noted how UVA's offense continued to find explosive gains. After Joe Reed's 44-yard catch and run on Saturday, 10 of the team's 16 touchdowns have now come on 20 yards or more.

Through four games, Perkins has electrified Virginia’s offense. While he's shown the ability to throw, its really been his legs that has transformed the team's entire dynamic. As Bronco Mendenhall said, "If you try to tackle him in the open field, and you're by yourself, good luck with that."

Former Hoo Denny McCarthy captured the Tour Championship on Sunday by four strokes. With the victory, McCarthy earned full PGA Tour status for the 2019 season.
