The Virginia football team held an opponent scoreless for the first time since 2008, as UVa beat VMI 49-0 Saturday at Scott Stadium.
Coming off of their bye week, the Cavaliers (2-1) rushed for 357 yards on 63 attempts during the rainy victory.
UVa last ran for over 300 yards in 2004.
"Those are the things that we wanted to do, that we practiced, and what we want to be," said head coach UVa Mike London. "Are you satisfied right now? You can't stay satisfied, because now we're going on our first road game."
Freshman walk-on Daniel Hamm rushed for 136 yards and two touchdowns, while junior Kevin Parks added 135 yards and two scores.
Parks also had 69 yards on three receptions.
"It was real big," says Parks. "We need to get our confidence going. I told the team earlier, man, we need to start back having fun. Once we start having fun, points will be put up."
Parks had a 61 yard TD run to put UVa up 7-0 in the 1st quarter.
The run is the longest of his career, and the team's longest since 2008.
David Watford completed 18-of-25 passes for a career-high 206 yards and two touchdowns.
Watford said, "Just being able to do what we want with the ball, driving the ball down the field, running the ball, throwing the ball, I feel like that gives our offense confidence. We're able to go out there and play, and just have fun."
Virginia plays its first road game of the season next week, as the Wahoos take on ACC opponent Pittsburgh at noon.
