Virginia beat South Carolina 28-0 in the Belk Bowl. Five thoughts and analysis of the win, and what it all means.
5. Olamide Zaccheaus is pronounced just like you’d think
South Carolina was missing its explosive star, Deebo Samuel. But Virginia’s receiver showed up, with Zaccheaus catching 12 passes for 100 yards and three touchdowns – with ten rushing yards – to take over the game with his midrange plays.
He might not have come up with any home runs, but he was consistently able to produce against the Gamecock D, and he helped keep the chains moving for a dominant game from the Virginia offense.
The Cavaliers converted 11-of-17 third down chances, and it was Zaccheaus who was the safety valve.
