CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 3 Virginia women's soccer team will play at home for the first tome in two weeks as it hosts No. 5 Duke on Sunday at Klöckner Stadium. Game time for the contest has been moved to 2 p.m., in order to allow the matchup to be televised by ESPNU.

The third-ranked Cavaliers (9-2-1, 2-1-1 ACC) are looking to rebound from a 3-1 loss at No. 10 Maryland on Thursday, which snapped Virginia's 10-game unbeaten streak.

Fifth-ranked Duke (8-2-1, 2-1-1 ACC) is coming off a 3-0 home victory over Clemson on Thursday.

Sunday's game will mark the first time since 1991 that two top-five teams will face each other in Charlottesville. The last time Virginia hosted a top-five showdown, the fourth-ranked Cavaliers downed No. 3 NC State 2-1 on Oct. 20, 1991.

Virginia leads the all-time series with Duke 17-11-7, including an 8-4-3 record in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers are 6-0-2 in regular season meetings with Duke over the past eight years, but the Blue Devils have won both postseason meetings during that span. Last year the teams played a scoreless draw in Durham.

The Cavaliers conclude their two-game homestand on Friday as they host No. 13 Wake Forest. Game time is 7 p.m., and the game will be broadcast online by the ACC Digital Network, available on YouTube.

Blount Eager to Assume Larger Role
The job will not be handed to rising sophomore Joey Blount. He'll have to earn it. This is head coach Bronco Mendenhall's program, after all. But after spending the 2017 season as free safety Quin Blanding's understudy, Blount is the leading candidate to take over in the secondary for the University of Virginia's all-time leading tackler.
