Virginia football rolled in-state rival William & Mary on Friday night, 52-17, highlighted by two long touchdowns from Joe Reed and a Nick Grant pick-six. That performance, which Eric broke down last night, pushed the team inside the AP Poll rankings to No. 25. In baseball news, Danny Hultzen, a Cavalier from 2008-2011, made his major league debut for the Chicago Cubs yesterday afternoon after getting drafted eight years ago.

Nick Grant called it.
Cool story: My brother @nxgrant been saying since we came in as freshmen, His 1st pick was going to the house. 4 years later he finally got it, & pointed to the sky when he crossed the end zone. He knew it would happen, but didn’t know when because it was God’s timing #Belie⚔️e https://t.co/hk5gLIo1mt— Bryce Hall (@BryceHall11) September 7, 2019
