Virginia has two streaks it desperately wants to end on Saturday.
The Cavaliers (2-9, 0-7 Atlantic Coast Conference) have lost nine straight games against rival Virginia Tech, and eight straight games overall this season.
Left tackle Morgan Moses says a victory against the Hokies on Saturday would make everyone forget all that.
The Hokies (7-4, 4-3) have lost three of four, but still have a chance to win the ACC's Coastal Division.
Hokies right guard Andrew Miller says he and his fellow seniors won't be thinking about a chance to play for the ACC championship. He says the rivalry game is personal, and the biggest game of the year.
Virginia defensive end Jake Snyder agrees, adding that Virginia has been on the wrong end for too long.
