Virginia concludes the home portion of its schedule in its annual "Senior Day" clash against N.C. State on Saturday (Nov. 18). The Cavaliers need one more win to become bowl eligible and two more victories to extend their string of seven-win seasons to 14.

Virginia erupted for 30 points in the third quarter last year to erase a 19-10 halftime deficit and post a 47-26 win. Two years ago the Cavaliers scored 14 unanswered points in the second half to gain a 23-13 win in the most recent meeting in Charlottesville.
