The Cavalier Football Team will make its way to Chapel Hill on Saturday, and do battle with the North Carolina Tar Heels in what has been tagged the South's Oldest Rivalry. Saturday's match up marks the 112th meeting between the two teams.
Virginia will once again be looking to halt its road woes. Since the ACC adopted its current two division format, the Cavs have only one conference road win on their record (Duke last season). The last trip to Kenan Stadium saw Virginia fall to the Tar Heels, 7-5.
Last season, the Cavaliers posted a 23-0 shutout against UNC, and will look for continued success. Al Groh says that this is the best team at North Carolina that he has seen since he arrived at Virginia. Click on the above video link to hear Coach Groh's comments on the Tar Heels.
