Sept. 9, 2006
This was Virginia's first overtime victory in five tries. The Cavaliers scored their first overtime touchdown on a 25-yard pass from Kevin McCabe to Kevin Ogletree. UVa had previously gone 0-4 in overtime - the last was in a 37-34 loss to Fresno State in the MPC Computers Bowl in Boise, Idaho on Dec. 27, 2004. Virginia had faced Clemson, Duke and BYU in extra time.
The last time Virginia held an opponent to one touchdown was in the 7-5 loss at North Carolina on Oct. 22, 2005.
This was Wyoming's sixth overtime game. The Cowboys are now, 3-3, in overtime games. The last one was played on Nov. 6, 2004 in a 53-45 triple overtime win over UNLV. Of the previous five overtime games, four were played in Las Vegas - three against UNLV and one against BYU in the 1996 Western Athletic Conference championship game.
Virginia wide receiver Kevin Ogletree had career-highs in receptions (10) and receiving yards (95). He also caught his first career touchdown on the first play in overtime.
Wyoming wide receiver Michael Ford caught a career-high nine receptions for 63 yards.
Wyoming's opening drive for a field goal marked the second consecutive game this year UVa's opponent has scored on its opening possession. Last week Pitt scored a TD on its opening drive.
Virginia's Jon Copper's first career sack came in the first quarter when he tackled Wyoming quarterback Jacob Doss for a loss of eight yards. He finished with a career-high 11 tackles.
Chris Cook made his first start at CB in nearly a year (Boston College '05) and was in on a career-high 12 tackles. He made six tackles in five games last year.
Wyoming successfully completed two fake punts in the first quarter, which both led to first downs for the Cowboys.
Marcus Hamilton recorded up his 11th career interception when he picked off Doss at the four-yard line and returned it 29 yards. He later recovered a fumble on Virginia goal line, the first of his career.
After recording one sack for eight yards in its first game of the season at Pittsburgh, Virginia sacked Wyoming four times for a loss of 20 yards (all in the first half). Virginia is 20-4 under Al Groh when recording at least three sacks.
The first half of the Virginia-Wyoming game was the lowest scoring half in a Virginia game since a 0-0 halftime score in the UVa-Virginia Tech game on Nov. 27, 2004.
With his third quarter reception, wide receiver Fontel Mines has now caught a pass in 13 consecutive games, the longest streak on the team.
Wyoming kicker Aric Goodman's 39-yard field goal in the third quarter was the longest of his career.
Virginia's Josh Zidenberg was the first Cavalier to block a punt since the Virginia vs. Duke game on Oct. 23, 2004 in Durham, N.C. when Jon Thompson blocked one in the third quarter. Zidenberg blocked his first collegiate punt in the third quarter.
Chris Gould's 49-yard field goal attempt that hit the left upright during the fourth quarter was the longest attempt of his career.
Prior to the kickoff of today's game the University of Virginia paid tribute to Carl W. Smith, one of the University's most generous supporters. A 1951 graduate, and former Cavalier player, Smith died in December. In 1997, Smith, along with his wife, Hunter, made a gift of $25 million to the University. It was the largest single monetary contribution in UVa history. The bulk of that unrestricted gift - $23 million - went toward the expansion of Scott Stadium. The area encompassing Scott Stadium is named The Carl Smith Center in Mr. Smith's honor.
