How BYU, Utah and USU's opponents fared in week two
Virginia Cavaliers »2 of 39 «
Last week: Lost 59-10 to No. 2 Oregon (2-0)
Up next: Bye week
The Cavaliers are doubtlessly grateful for a bye week after the pounding they suffered in front of more than 59,000 fans at Scott Stadium.
Virginia made things interesting early, but inconsistent play on special teams and critical mistakes down the stretch, not to mention Marcus Mariota's incredible speed, put the game away by the late second quarter.
Quarterback David Watford shouldered the blame for the loss.
“It wasn’t really the offense. It was me,” he told the Washington Post. “I executed not to the caliber I wanted to. I made three costly mistakes, three costly turnovers. It wasn’t the offense’s fault as a whole. It was my fault. I take the blame solely.”
Following their bye week, the Cavaliers will take on VMI, an FCS foe. The Cavaliers will doubtlessly appreciate the tune-up before their game at Pittsburgh on Sept. 28.
