Cavaliers Defense Looking To Slow Down Quack Attack
UVa junior cornerback Demetrious Nicholson
The UVa football team made history last weekend, becoming the first FBS team this century to punt 13 times in a single game, and still win.
Virginia will have to do a better job Saturday controlling the ball and keeping Oregon's potent offense off the field.
The Ducks racked up a school record 772 yards against Nicholls State last weekend.
Oregon averaged 50 points per game last year, which was the second-highest total in the nation.
The Cavaliers say they know they won't stop the Ducks completely, but they must slow them down.
UVa junior linebacker Henry Coley says, "Football is a humbling game, you are going to have your pluses and you're gonna have your minuses, but how are you going to bounce back after your minus plays? That's the biggest thing. I think they can be contained. It's like Kevin Durant. Kevin Durant is going to go out there and get 30 points every night, regardless. But are you going to let him get 25? That's the question. So I think that's the biggest thing."
Virginia will host Oregon Saturday at 3:30 PM at Scott Stadium.
