Even at 2-9 on the season, the Virginia football team is steadfast in their support of one another and are banding together ahead of the season finale next week at Scott Stadium against arch-rival Virginia Tech.

"We're fighting adversity right now," junior running back Kevin Parks said of outside criticism of the team. "Our backs are against the wall. We've got one game left to go out and beat Virginia Tech."

Saturday's 48-26 loss to Miami pushed the Cavalier losing streak to eight games, it's longest since 1975. The Wahoos committed four more turnovers in the loss: a fumble, and three David Watford interceptions.

But Watford was one of the Cavalier players insisting to reporters after the game that the team is united in their quest to finish the season on a positive with a win over the Hokies.

"We take on an 'us versus the world' mentality because that's how we feel," Watford said. "We're all we have right now. We have to have each other's backs and that's the most important thing in the locker room."

"It's kinda been just us and I like that," Parks added. "It builds the character of the team and the guys and it shows the true brothers of the team."
