THIS WEEK: Fifth-ranked Virginia opens exhibition play with South Florida on Saturday, August 25. The teams take the field at Klöckner Stadium at 7 p.m. Virginia's originally scheduled exhibition opener at VCU was canceled due to weather.
SCOUTING SOUTH FLORIDA: South Florida, under the guidance of sixth-year head coach George Kiefer, is coming off a 9-6-4 season in 2006. The Bulls are led by Jordan Seabrook, who led the Big East in scoring two seasons ago.
The game is the third and final exhibition contest this year for South Florida. They defeated University of Tampa and Saint Louis, both at home by 2-0 scores.
SERIES VS. SOUTH FLORIDA: In regular-season action, Virginia holds a 2-0-1 overall series edge over South Florida. The teams last met in 2005 at Klöckner Stadium in a NCAA Tournament second round game. The contest ended 4-4 before the Cavaliers advanced in a penalty kick shootout, 7-6, the longest shootout in UVa history. Dane Murphy had two goals and Yannick Reyering and Joe Vide also scored for the Cavaliers in that game.
REYERING NAMED SEMIFINALIST FOR HERMANN TROPHY: Junior forward Yannick Reyering has been selected as one of 29 candidates named to the 2007 Hermann Trophy Watch List. The award is presented annually to the top men's and women's players in collegiate soccer.
IN THE POLLS: Virginia is ranked No. 5 in the NSCAA/adidas coaches' preseason poll. UVa also stands No. 6 in the College Soccer News' preseason poll.
