AUG 27 -- Redshirt freshman receive Eldridge Massington talked about the feeling of playing in his first college game Saturday...

Eldridge Massington talked after practice.


On his first game:
I'm excited. I have a lot of nerves built up. I haven't played since my junior year. It's been a while but I'm excited.

On Virginia:
They're a great football team, the defense is real good. Their safety had the most interceptions last year and I can't wait to go against him.

On being back on the field:
I know I'll be a little nervous, first college game, first start. I'm excited, I can't wait. I have nerves built up. That's it.

On how he'll relax before the game:
Listen to my R&B music. Stay next to Brett, watch how he handles himself and carries himself. He's helped me a lot.

On his pregame music:
A little Usher. Little stuff like that.

On watching Brett Hundley:
I watch him work and do extra stuff, a lot of film work, a lot of work with the lineman. He stays in the film room and does that every day.

On if he's where he wants to be:
I'm where I want to be. I couldn't be more prepared. I've been waiting for this moment and just excited. I'm ready to go. I'm tired of going against our defense every day, I'm ready to go against everyone else.

On if he'll embrace the moment:
Yeah, I have to. I have to enjoy the moment.

On if he'll appreciate it more:
I appreciate it now. It's tough being out two years. I have a lot of emotion built up. I'm just ready to go.

On Darren Andrews:
He's doing good, rehabbing. He's put on a little weight, a little muscle, and his mind is right and he'll come back stronger and faster.
