Virginia 19 BYU 16 Final

They say there is no such thing as a second chance but it appears that is exactly what is going to happen in the BYU/Virginia game.

After a rather pedestrian first quarter where both teams were stymied offensively, a lengthy lightning delay has taken place.

While it may not be the Super Bowl, this situation does seem reminiscent of the power outage which struck the 49ers and the Ravens earlier this year. San Francisco used that restart to make a snoozer into a great game.

The difference here is that both teams want to hit the reset button. BYU needs to find an offensive rhythm without star receiver Cody Hoffman.

Virginia needs to establish its own rhythm and get David Watford in favorable second and third down situations to keep drives alive.

The running game has been rather mediocre on both sides but Kevin Parks has shown Virginia fans that tenacity which has earned him the starting spot over freshman sensation Taquan Mizzell.

Will lightning shock both of these offenses into high gear?
