Cavaliers Ready For Challenge From Duke

Posted: Updated:

The Virginia football team will be looking to snap a three-game losing streak this week, as the Cavaliers travel to face Duke on Saturday.

UVA had lost three in a row against the Blue Devils before a 10-point win last season at Scott Stadium.

Duke is off to a 4-1 start this year, and is 1-0 in the conference after beating Wake Forest last week.

Virginia's oldest rival is averaging 37-points per game on offense this year, and UVA senior Will Hill says Duke isn't the pushover they once were.

"Duke's a good team," says Hill.  "They're improving each and every year. They're a competitor just like we are. We prepare every week to win, and they do the same thing."

Virginia will face Duke in Durham Saturday at 3 o'clock.
