15th  Was UVA second-year Brennan Armstrong’s ranking among all Football Bowl Subdivision quarterbacks with an offensive grade of 82.7 (minimum 100 drop-backs) through Oct. 24. The grade was the second best among Power Five quarterbacks who had 25 or fewer career passing attempts entering this fall.

23.3  Yards per reception for Virginia first-year wide receiver Lavel Davis Jr., which ranked No. 1 in the ACC and No. 10 nationally heading into the final weekend in October. The 6-7, 210-pound Davis led the Cavaliers with 101 receiving yards and two touchdowns on four receptions in his collegiate debut against Duke Sept. 26, and had nine catches for 210 yards with three scores while seeing action in four of the team’s first five contests. Five of his nine receptions went for 20-plus yards, and three went for 30-plus yards. On Oct. 20, the Football Writers Association of America added Davis to the watch list for its Freshman All-America team.

68.7  Run-blocking grade for UVA third-year Olusegun Oluwatimi, which ranked 16th in the country among centers with at least 200 snaps through Oct. 24. In mid-October, Oluwatimi was named to the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, which is presented annually to the nation’s best center.

2023  Is the year Virginia will host the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Championships at Panorama Farms in Earlysville, Va. It will mark the second time that the Cavaliers will serve as host for the national meet. UVA was the site of the 1987 NCAA Championships, which were held at the Foxfield Course in Charlottesville.
