It has already been a historic season for the Cavalier Football Team. Virginia has set an NCAA record with five wins by two points or less, and tied the school record with seven consecutive wins. Saturday night in Miami, Al Groh and his team will play another part in college football history.

Virginia will battle the Hurricanes in the final game ever played at the Orange Bowl, a site that has hosted five super bowls, and 14 collegiate national championship games. Last season, the Cavaliers beat Miami for the first time in school history, and will go for two in a row on Saturday. Virginia will also be looking to improve its record to 9-2, and 6-1 in the ACC, as well as secure an above .500 record on the road for the first time since 2004.

Saturday's kickoff is set for 7:15pm. Click on the above video link to hear from both respective head coaches.
