Live from Scott Stadium

Hello, everyone. It's a cool October morning here in Charlottesville. Great day for football. The teams have yet to take the field, but here are a few quick notes to get things started.

Today will mark the second time Virginia ever has faced an unranked Florida State squad. After being ranked in each of the first 14 contests between the two programs, the Seminoles were not ranked in 2006 when Florida State won, 33-0, in Tallahassee.

Mike London will look to become just the second Virginia coach to win his Atlantic Coast Conference opener. Cavaliers coaches are 1-9 all-time in their ACC debuts. Al Groh stands as the only Virginia coach ever to win his ACC opener. Under Groh, the Cavaliers claimed a 26-24 win at Clemson in 2001.

A quick note on Florida State: Regular right tackle Zebrie Sanders is expected to play on the left side of the Seminoles' offensive line today in place of the injured Andrew Datko (shoulder), and Henry Orelus is expected to fill Sanders's spot at right tackle, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
