The Virginia Cavaliers get the distinct privilege of hosting the No. 2 team in the country this week, the Oregon Ducks. The Hoos certainly have their work cut out for them today, but stranger things have happened. The last time Virginia hosted the No. 2 team in the country, the Hoos pulled off the big upset over Florida State in 1995, handing the Seminoles their first loss in the ACC.
These two schools have never faced off before, so today should be a fun matchup against a new opponent. Well, "fun" being a relative term. For Virginia, the goal is to continue building momentum coming off last week's sort-of-an-upset victory over BYU.
