The shootings of three members of its football team have led its school to change plans as Virginia cancels its second straight football game. Both schools and the ACC announced the news on Monday evening, releasing this statement:
“The ACC and Virginia Tech continue to support UVA following the devastating tragedy, which resulted in the deaths of three members of the Cavalier football team – Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr. and D’Sean Perry, and injuries to students Mike Hollins (also a Virginia football student-athlete) and Marlee Morgan.”
The game was scheduled for this Saturday, Nov. 26. Virginia’s last game against Coastal Carolina was also cancelled because of the campus murders. Monday’s decision was made following communication between the Atlantic Coast Conference, Virginia and Virginia Tech athletic department administrations.
Both seasons came to an end because of the decision. UVA will finish 2022 at 3-7 and Virginia Tech at 3-8.
