Louisville coach Bobby Petrino was asked about the possibility that Virginia will try to play keep away on offense Saturday. "(Bronco Mendenhall) mentioned it a couple times now, so there's a possibility I would say," Petrino said.

Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall gave a nod to Duke's approach against Louisville, when the Blue Devils decided to milk the play clock as much as possible to keep the ball away from Lamar Jackson. It nearly worked. "That gives us the best chance, a similar approach," Mendenhall said.

Virginia has provided a tough challenge to Louisville in the two years they've played in the ACC, winning in 2014 and losing by a touchdown in 2015. Though coach Bronco Mendenhall wasn't a part of those games, he's heard his players discuss the success they've had against the Cards going into their game Saturday. "I was not a part of it, but to the players it's real," Mendenhall said. "I will do everything I can to build the momentum off that."
