UVA Football Plans To Regroup During Bye Week

Posted: Updated:

Virginia dropped its 6th game in a row as the Cavaliers fell 16-10 at home against Wake Forest and it'll be a long time before they get another chance to play.

The problems for UVA were the same Saturday as they have been throughout the streak, as penalties, turnovers, and special teams mistakes kept coming at the most inopportune time.

The 'Hoos are now on their longest losing streak since 2009, when the team lost the final six games of the Al Groh Era.

Virginia turned the ball over three times against the Demon Deacons.

UVA won't be in action again until November 3rd at N.C. State, and head coach Mike London says it's hard to wait after another tough defeat.

London says, "That losing tastes lingers in your mouth for a while. You get rid of that as you play another game. Obviously we don't play for a while."

Quarterback Phillip Sims says, "During a bye week you get back to the things that you were taught to do, the small things, and you should see the difference when we come back on in two weeks."

UVA freshman defensive end says the bye couldn't come soon enough.

"It's just starting to take a toll on me," says Harold. "I'm trying to stay positive, but it's getting old, man. Something has got to change. We just have to keep doing what we're doing. Keep it positive. You got to eliminate the penalties, that's one this we got to do. But other than that, I really don't know."
