The Cavalier football team is coming off a 24-17 overtime loss to Miami, and looks to rebound for its final three games of the season. Al Groh talked about the loss during his weekly appearance on CBS19 News at Noon.

Groh says that Virginia lost the game because they did not take control of the game, and field goals and turnovers cost the Cavaliers. He also said that his team may have lost, but it did not take a step back, as the game went as several did in the past with Virginia coming out on top.

The head coach also discussed Mikell Simpson, who fractured his clavicle and is done for the season. Groh says that Rashawn Jackson and Raynard Horne are both candidates to replace Simpson. Groh also touched on Cedric Peerman's fumble to end the game and how the team rallied around its senior leader.

Groh finished up by talking about this Saturday's match up at Wake Forest, as Virginia battles the Demon Deacons.
