2017 Virginia Cavaliers Football Schedule Realistic Best Case Scenario

The Cavaliers are night-and-day stronger in Year Two of the Bronco Mendenhall era, rolling through Indiana and UConn on the way to a great start to the season before dealing with Boise State on the road. A 3-1 September would be strong getting into the week off, rested and ready before a win over Duke at home. It’ll be a tough run in the second half with three road games in four weeks before dealing with Virginia Tech, and a loss at North Carolina on the road would sting, but a 7-5 season leads to a decent bowl bid.

2017 Virginia Cavaliers Football Schedule Realistic Worst Case Scenario

With losses to Indiana and Boise State, the Cavaliers start out 2-2 and struggle as soon as ACC play kicks in. They lose all the road games to North Carolina, Pitt, Louisville and Miami, and only come up with a few good home wins, with losses to Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech along the way. The team is better, but no one would know if from the 4-8 record and a rough finishing kick.
