The Virginia defense had a good afternoon against the triple option.
- The 'Hoos held the Yellow Jackets to just 144 yards of rushing (49 on one play), and forced Georgia Tech to throw more than 30 times- the first time in Paul Johnson era.
- Georgia Tech only had six first downs in the first half
- UVA forced two turnovers
- Quin Blanding had a career-tying 15 tackles
- Micah Kiser forced his second fumble in three games.
- Virginia rushed for 233 yards, which was a season high and highest since Kent State in 2014.
- Daniel Hamm had his first career start and scored his first touchdown of the season.
TAKING THEIR OPPORTUNITIES
- The 'Hoos capitalized on the two turnovers forced by the defense. The offense scored ten points off of two turnovers-the most in a single game.
- The Cavs did struggle in the red zone, however. The Cavaliers marched down to the 1-yard line twice, but both times came up short and settled for a field goal.
