Is this the year the Virginia Cavaliers finally take possession of the Commonwealth Cup?
At 2-9, with eight losses in a row, UVa closes out the season at home this Saturday against archrival Virginia Tech.
The Hokies aren't exactly entering this weekend's game riding a wave of positive momentum. After a season-opening loss to No. 1 Alabama, the Hokies reeled off six wins in a row and look poised to dominate the Coastal Division. Losses to Duke, Boston College and Maryland changed things dramatically for the Hokies, though.
As impossible as it may sound, a Virginia Tech win coupled with a Duke loss would put the Hokies in the ACC Championship Game against Florida State.
The Cavaliers have a chance not only to end their nine-game losing streak against Tech, but also to ruin the Hokies' season.
Are they up to the challenge?
The Wahoos haven't beaten the Hokies since 2003. Overall, VT has won 13 of the past 14 meetings and now leads the all-time series 52-37-5.
