Virginia’s quest for the best bowl game possible continues today against the vaunted triple option.

Here are five storylines from UVA:

  • Virginia is looking for its first win at Bobby Dodd Stadium since 2008 when the Cavaliers left Atlanta with a 24-17 victory.
  • SS Juan Thornhill is tied for No. 3 in the nation and tied for No. 2 in the ACC with five interceptions. His 12 career interceptions are No. 2 among active FBS players (Jalen Young, FAU, 13) and he is tied for No. 7 all-time on the UVA career ledger.
  • OLB Chris Peace leads the ACC’s linebackers with 6.0 sacks and is tied for No. 9 among the nation’s linebackers. Peace is No. 2 in the ACC in TFLs by a linebacker with 10.0.
  • HB Olamide Zaccheaus, UVA’s all-time career reception leader, is climbing the ACC’s all-time reception list coming in at No. 12 with 224 career catches. Zaccheaus is also No. 3 among all active FBS players in career receptions, trailing Fresno State’s Keesean Johnson (250) and Duke’s T.J. Rahming (231).
  • QB Bryce Perkins is responsible for 158 points (18 passing TDs, 8 rushing TDs & 1 Pass 2pt.) which ranks No. 1 in the ACC and No. 18 in the nation.
