Virginia triggers Pack Line Pledge with win over Wisconsin

For the fifth time in seven games, the Virginia defense does its job.

NCAA Basketball: Wisconsin at Virginia Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

For the fifth time in seven games, the Virginia Cavaliers defense held its opponent to under 55 points, dismantling Wisconsin in the 19th annual ACC-Big Ten Challenge, 49-37. As is always the case between these two teams, it was a defensive battle from start to finish -- unbearable for the Dukes and Carolinas of the world, but a thing of beauty for the rest of us. Either way, it’s time to pay the Pack Line Pledge!

You can use the little CrowdRise widget to make your donation, which is tax deductible as the money goes straight to the One Love Foundation.

For those of you who don’t remember, for ever Pack Line Pledge game -- that is, for every game that the Cavaliers hold their opponents to under 55 — Pack Line Pledge participants will donate a set amount to the One Love Foundation in honor of Yeardley Love. The better the Hoos’ defense over the course of the year, the more money gets donated towards raising awareness of relationship violence.

Make your donation above. But to join the list below and to receive email reminders when Virginia holds an opponent to under-55, sign up below the chart. Remember that no amount is too small — even pledging just $2 or $5 per game will make a difference. If CrowdRise has a minimum donation amount, just hold on to your gifts until you reach the minimum, or until the end of the season.

Big thanks to the following readers for making their pledges!
