John Paul Jones will be rocking early Saturday morning as the Virginia Cavaliers are playing host to ESPN's Game Day for the second straight year.
Students have been camped out as early as Thursday at 2:00 p.m. They deserve medals.

Reviving Hooville is reminiscent of the 1990s and early 2000s when Virginia regularly had several hundred tents lined up outside of UHall. Then-Coach Pete Gillen used to come out and give pizza and donuts to students. Not a lot of things change, as Bennett surprised the campers with pizza on Friday.
