Some spectators at the University of Virginia football game against Liberty University are going green. It's all part of the nationwide Gameday Recycling Challenge.

Colleges are competing to see who can have the least amount of waste at their home games.

The UVA Office of Sustainability and student-athletes encouraged those at Saturday’s game to do their part.

“Athletics is a great platform to educate the community and students and everyone out in the public, so we feel if we can be socially responsible and recycle here we can have an impact on the larger community and do our part to help out the environment,” said Anthony Bouselli.

Last year, the University of Virginia placed third in the ACC for overall recycling, and 10th in the entire competition. This year, 90 students made sure they do even better.
