CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Virginia plays its final regular season contest against in-state rival Virginia Tech this Saturday (Nov. 25) in what has to be one of the most underrated rivalries in the nation.

The Cavaliers became bowl eligible last Saturday with their 24-17 win over N.C. State, but they need a win this week over the Hokies to extend their streak of seven-win seasons to 14 straight. The Cavaliers are 6-4 overall this fall, including 5-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The Hokies, ranked sixth in this week's Associated Press poll and fifth in the USA Today/ESPN coaches poll, had last week off to prepare for the Cavaliers. They are 9-1 overall this season and finished with a 6-1 Big East record.

The home team has not fared well in this series in the last decade. Since 1990 the home team is 4-6 and has lost the last two. Virginia gained a dramatic come-from-behind 36-32 win over the Hokies in their last trip to Blacksburg. Trailing 29-7 at halftime, the Cavaliers used a spirited second half to rally for the win. Aaron Brooks' 47-yard scoring strike to Ahmad Hawkins proved to be the winner for UVa.

Television: Saturday's game is being televised nationally on ESPN. Ron Franklin calls the play-by-play, while Mike Gottfried provides the color commentary. Adrian Karsten is the sideline reporter.

Radio: All UVa games are heard on the Virginia Sports Network originating at WINA/WWWV in Charlottesville. Mac McDonald calls the play by play. Frank Quayle, the 1968 ACC Football Player of the Year, provides the color commentary, while Quayle's former teammate and quarterback Gene Arnette provides sideline analysis.
