UVA concludes football season, gives program time off after challenging 2020



CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.  – The Virginia football program has put a bow on its 2020 campaign and will not accept a bowl game invitation, according to a team release Sunday.

At the request of head coach Bronco Mendenhall, team captains and task unit leaders talked Sunday to go over the decision and the probable ACC-affiliated bowl invitation that awaits. The team will finish the year at 5-5 after losing the season finale to Virginia Tech Saturday.

“They have all grown tremendously from the challenges put before them this year,” said Mendenhall in the release. “But now is the time to return to families and loved ones. This team will always be special for how it handled competing during the pandemic. It is one more example of the amazing capacity and leadership of the young men that allow me to coach them every day.”
