Live from Scott Stadium: Virginia vs. VMI

Hello everyone, we're less than an hour from kickoff here. Players are out on the field going through warmup drills, and cadets from Virginia Military Institute have begun to fill a corner of the upper deck.

Senior cornerback Ras-I Dowling (hamstring) and junior strong safety Rodney McLeod (knee) are participating in pregame drills, though given they've done that before the past two games -- and went on to sit out both -- that's not necessarily an indication either will play today against VMI.

On the injury front, redshirt freshman wide receiver Bobby Smith walked onto the field with the help of crutches. He's wearing a boot on his left foot. Sophomore wide receiver Tim Smith also is not dressed in pads, though that's not much of a surprise. According to Coach Mike London, Tim Smith was to have received a second opinion on his injured ankle in the last few days.

Though the Cavaliers and Keydets have not played each other since 1991, this will be the 82nd meeting between the two programs. Virginia has played only two other opponents more times than it has faced VMI. The last time the Keydets prevailed in this series? That was back on Sept. 30, 1978, a 17-9 win in Charlottesville. Only once in the past eight meetings has the Virginia-VMI game been decided by fewer than 10 points.
