UVa head coach "thrilled" to play Clemson, said title game exposed Cavs' deficiencies

Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall is thrilled to be playing Clemson again, saying that last year’s loss in the ACC Championship Game showed the deficiencies in his program.

Clemson defeated the Cavaliers 62-17 in last December’s ACC title game, and the teams will face off again this Saturday in Death Valley (8 pm, ACC Network). The Tigers opened as a four-touchdown favorite.

“Oh yeah, I'm thrilled to be able to get a chance to play Clemson again,” said Mendenhall. “Having earned the chance to play them in the ACC championship game last year, it just accelerated our program.
