Al Groh's Cavalier football team is on a three game losing streak and will look to snap that skid when it returns home this Saturday. Virginia will play host to Boston College at Scott Stadium. The two teams are meeting for the first time since 2005 and for only the fourth time in history.

Groh talked about the Eagles during his one-on-one interview with Marc Davis on Wednesday. He says that Boston College does not do a whole lot of different things, but is very fundamentally sound and executes well in the things they do. Groh says the Eagles have been playing a very similar style of football for the last 15 years and they recruit to that style, which is the solid fundamental player.

Boston College is 0-3 on the road this season, but Groh says that it mainly comes down to what goes on between the white lines. He also points out that players are human beings, too, and hear the talk about struggles on the road. He goes on to say that outside information does have the ability to affect what players think, especially the younger players.

The running game is also discussed, including Rashawn Jackson, who Groh discusses.

Finally, Groh addresses the crowd, saying that he is aware of the crowd, but once the game starts he focuses solely on the game.
