Virginia dominates all day, drops UConn

Virginia dominates all day, drops UConn”

Virginia looks to avenge last season's loss at CT when the Cavaliers host the Huskies in a non-conference game Saturday.

Virginia led 31-0 in the third quarter before UConn (1-1) added three late touchdowns (all its two-point attempts failed). Levrone finished with a career-high 127 yards on four catches. Both teams should be somewhat improved in 2017, but Virginia's two stars on defense might be enough to help the Cavaliers pull away from a struggling UConn offense. UConn (1-1) went 1 of 4 on red zone possessions - including two turnovers and a turnover-on-downs.

The Huskies offense will look to rebound from a miserable 2016 season behind freshman running back Nate Hopkins, who carried the ball 20 times for 130 yards and three touchdowns to key the win over Holy Cross. Shirreffs was 9 of 13 for 124 yards and one touchdown, an 11-yard connection with Hergy Mayala for the go-ahead score against the Crusaders.

VIRGINIA: The rumored big-play capabilities of the Cavaliers appeared - and in great frequency.

Benkert threw passes to nine different receivers. Doni Dowling led the corps, tallying 136 yards on six grabs with a touchdown.

2 Keep rushing yards from the QB to a minimum: U.Va. has allowed a rushing touchdown to a quarterback in back-to-back games.

The Cavaliers played the entire second half without senior defensive end Andrew Brown, who was ejected in the second quarter for targeting.

Virginia takes to the road for the first time this season to face Boise State in its second straight nationally televised game (ESPN2).

CT will host East Carolina in its first of five straight American Conference opponents.
