As part of the Universitas 21 Consortium, UVa hosted several presidents, provosts, and chancellors from four different countries as part of a way to expand education and create alliances with foreign schools. Saturday the guests went through a "Football 101" session,
learned a few Wahoo traditions and even felt what it's like to wear a Cavalier jersey.

"This whole concept of college institutions competing against each other is something that is foreign, if you will, to our visitors," Craig Littlepage, Athletic Director, said.

After a full tour of Scott stadium and John Paul Jones Arena, those visiting got to finish out the day by watching the game from the president's suite.
