Virginia’s defense is stingy, and that comes in handy on the road in conference play. The Cavaliers have allowed only 18.3 points per game this season, and opponents are generating fewer than 200 passing yards per game against Virginia. Syracuse is operating at a high level through the air, but the Orange are averaging only 3.9 yards per carry, giving Virginia an avenue toward success.

Virginia is solidly above-average on the ground, racking up 176.7 yards per game and 4.6 yards per carry. Quarterback Brennan Armstrong is a two-way threat with more than 1,000 career rushing yards, and pass-catcher Keytaon Thompson has more than 1,200 receiving yards since the start of the 2021 season. Syracuse’s defense is giving up a 73.5% completion rate to begin the 2022 campaign, and Armstrong is experienced and capable of explosiveness.
