UVA Finds Grace Under Fire

Posted: Updated:

UVA Football coach, Mike London has had a rough few days. Saturday UVA lost to Duke and on Monday, his new practice facility that's under construction went up in flames - but London said they will continue to fight.

On Saturday, his football team went down in flames as they lost to Duke 42-17, meaning the Wahoo's have now lost 4 in a row.

The young Cavalier defense continues to struggle. The Cavaliers were outscored 28-0 in the second half against Duke.

Now that the 'hoos are halfway through the season, they have a record of 2-4. Coach London said they won't be discouraged and will continue to try to fix their problems. He added, "You want to make sure your in position to make a play on the ball, you want to be able to anticipate when that ball is going to be thrown. There's little things you can do - you just got to keep pressing the players about the mindset of doing that. I'm confident that when one happens a lot of times they keep coming."
