CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Virginia's offensive problems are found in the numbers.
The Cavaliers (2-5, 0-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) are averaging nearly 500 yards over the past three games, a figure that would rank in the top 20 in the nation if it carried on for a full season. Still, they lost all three because they are averaging just 25 points in those games.
That would rank in the lower third in the nation, and how to make the yardage translate into points remains a focus.
And a source of frustration as Virginia prepares to face Wake Forest (3-3, 1-3) this weekend.
Tight end Jake McGee says the trouble lies in "the small things" the team needs to do better. He says the team expects to score touchdowns every time it has the ball.
