Don’t look now, but the Virginia Cavaliers are riding a four-game winning streak that extends back to October, improving to 5-4 after a rocky start to the pandemic season. The Virginia Tech Hokies, meanwhile are on a four-game losing streak during that same stretch, with a tough slate of opponents in Clemson, Miami, and then-undefeated Liberty.
