PAT’S THOUGHTS:

I really like UVA here.  Ohio struggled mightily vs Howard.  They gave up 645 yards of offense and only won by 6.  UVA beat Richmond, and hung tough with Indiana.  Not impressive, but much more impressive than struggling with Howard.  The only pause I have is UVA is really down right now.  I love Bronco Mendenhall, and almost want to take the game just because of him, but I think I’ll pass.  The reverse line movement on this game is very scary.  UVA opened at -6.5 and is now -3.5 despite getting 68% of the money.  Something smells fishy, and thus I’ll stay away.
