Virginia Prediction: What’s Going To Happen
There’s a chance to be even better, but not quite have the record to show for it.
QB Bryce Perkins should add a dynamic element to the stagnant offense with a running game that can’t be any worse. It’s not a deep offense, but the good playmakers among the starting 11 should be enough to improve the attack.
Perkins will be the key on one side, and the defense will be even stronger. After so many problems late last season, the run D will be solid with all the veterans back in the linebacking corps. However, the lack of depth and bodies for the defensive front will be a big issue over the first half of the season.
Overall, the schedule isn’t bad enough to take a big step back, but even with no Clemson or Florida State to deal with, and with a slew of favorable home games, it’ll be a fight to get to six wins. They’ll get there.
Guessing The Preseason Regular Season Win Total Will Be Set At … 5
The Cavaliers will once again have to rise up and produce in the first half of the season. Beating Richmond, Ohio and Liberty have to be locks, and it’ll be vital to at least split the home dates against Pitt and North Carolina.
Winning at Indiana, NC State, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech will be tough, but if they can get one win in this bunch, they should be able to hit six wins. Win two, and going bowling won’t be a problem.
However, that’s assuming a win over an improved UNC, and upset or three, and a few clunkers from good teams.
