The Cavaliers (9-4-2, 1-3-2 ACC), ranked No. 18 in the latest Soccer America rankings, are coming off a 2-1 double overtime loss to Duke on Friday. Matt Mitchell (Tariffville, Conn.) scored his first career goal in the match against the Blue Devils. Virginia is undefeated at home this season (7-0-0) against non-conference opponents.
