Mistakes have cost Virginia far too often under Mike London, and it could happen again in what might be his last game as the Cavs' coach. A dropped touchdown, seven penalties and an absurd fake punt on 4th and 16 have hurt UVa, which has lost 11 straight to VaTech. It's 6-6 at half.

Michigan hotel trolls Ohio State?

The latest layer to the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry: Keys that wouldn't allow access to rooms as the Ohio State football team arrived at its Michigan hotel. As one Ohio State player put it: "Welcome to Michigan."
