Virginia Cavaliers Game Notes

Virginia redshirt junior QB Keytaon Thompson ran nine times for 86 yards with two touchdowns in a 43-32 win on Saturday over Boston College. Thompson was able to make an impact -- a big one -- despite being just used as an option off the bench in the win. The former MSU transfer ran for 10-yard score in the second quarter, and he showed off his speed on a 43-yard score that extended UVA's lead to 43-25. Thompson will likely need to transfer in order to play somewhere in 2021 -- Brennan Armstrong appears to have the starting gig locked up -- but he should be used by the Cavaliers next Saturday against Virginia Tech.

Virginia Tech Hokies Game Notes

Virginia Tech redshirt junior QB Hendon Hooker (undisclosed) is fine and expected to play Saturday against Virginia. Hooker (6'4/220) was knocked out of Saturday's game against Clemson after fumbling a snap on the first drive and getting clocked by a Clemson defensive lineman. He attempted a pass on the next play but ended up leaving the game immediately thereafter with Braxton Burmeister taking over. HC Justin Fuentes indicated the redshirt junior QB had trouble with the cold weather, but is ultimately fine and will take steps to help with the elements this Saturday against Virginia.
