For the third time in a row, the Virginia Cavaliers football team did not make the cut for SB Nation’s FanPulse Top 25 (shame on you, non-UVA believers).

Defensive tackle Aaron Faumui made it onto Pro Football Focus’ ACC Team of the Week following his performance last Friday that included a tackle for loss and an assisted sack.
