Virginia Cavaliers Football Schedule Analysis: There’s a warm up against William & Mary, and then it’s Game On with a fun home game against Illinois followed up by a run of three ACC road games in the first four. That includes a trip to North Carolina along with a weeknight game against Miami. However, there’s a payoff in the second half of the year with four home games in the final six.
There aren’t any real breaks, though. Going to BYU isn’t any sort of a break in late October, and having to play Notre Dame is a bear. At least that’s at home along with the rivalry date with Virginia Tech.
Virginia Cavaliers Football Schedule Best Case Scenario: 9-3. It’s a bear of a schedule, but the Cavaliers take care of home games against Illinois and Wake Forest to go along with huge performances against Notre Dame and Virginia Tech. There’s a loss on the road to North Carolina here, and one to Miami there, and there’s likely a defeat to either the Irish or Hokies, but the team fights on through.
Virginia Cavaliers Football Schedule Worst Case Scenario: 4-8. The schedule is a bear, and nothing goes quite right. A loss to Illinois is just the start, and it just gets uglier from there with problems on the road again North Carolina and Miami, and with a loss at Louisville putting the pressure on in the second half. The finishing kick is a disaster with losses in all of the final four games.
