**Virginia tailback Thomas Jones, the nation's leading rusher, set a school record with 331 all-purpose yards (221 rushing, 110 receiving). The previous record was held by "Bullet" Bill Dudley and was one of the oldest records in the UVa record book.

**Jones has compiled a UVa season record 1951 all-purpose yards, breaking the previous record of 1906 yards by Tiki Barber in 1995 (12 games vs. Jones' 10 games). UNC's McCauley also holds the ACC record with 2021 all-purpose yards in 1970.
**Jones' 16 rushing touchdowns this season is tied for sixth in ACC history, while his 17 total touchdowns is tied for fifth in league history.
