UVa Football Falls 45-26 to Miami

Posted: Updated:


The Virginia Football team's losing skid increased to eight Saturday as the Cavaliers fell 45-26 to Miami at Sun Life Stadium.

Taquan Mizzell scored his first touchdown and added one more while Kevin Parks ran for 130 yards and a score for Virginia (2-9, 0-7) but it wasn't enough to stop the Canes.

UVa's offense was plagued by four interceptions, three of which were thrown by quarterback David Watford and led to Hurricane touchdowns.

Watford said, "There were some passes that I should of made and some catches that were drops that the guys should have caught. It's all part of playing in that type of weather. We killed ourselves. Particularly me. I really hurt the offense. I put us in a bad position. I jeopardized the game and you know we ended up losing."

"Here you are - the game is competitive and then all of the sudden the ball goes off of the receivers hand and then they catch it and they go the distance there," said head coach Mike London. "Just the sudden turn of events of the field change to where it is to all of the sudden where it ends up - again, that's disappointing."

UVa running back Parks said, "it's the name of the game, you know. That's what happened today. We turned the ball over and it hurt us in the end."

Virginia will try to snap its eight game losing skid next week when the 'Hoos host Virginia Tech.
