UVa Safety Anthony Harris Must Sit Out For First Half Against Virginia Tech
On Saturday, the UVa football team must beat rival Virginia Tech to avoid its first 2 win season since 1982.
The 'Hoos have lost 9 straight to the Hokies.
Virginia junior safety Anthony Harris, who leads the nation with 8 interceptions. On Saturday against Miami, Harris became the first Wahoo ever to record an interception in 5 straight games.
Later in the match-up, Harris was ejected for a controversial "targeting" penalty against Miami quarterback Steven Morris. After the officials reviewed the play, Harris' shoulder hit Morris' helmet as he slid at the end of a run. Now, Harris will not be allowed to play in the first half of Saturday's game against Virginia Tech per NCAA rules.
Harris said, "I don't view myself as a player who targets, I wasn't offended by the call, I know they have the rule in place for safety matters. Basically I had to sit on the sidelines and try to coach guys up so I'm pretty sure that'll be a similar role I'm doing at the game on Saturday just trying to talk to guys let them know what I see from the sidelines."
