Final: Virginia 21, Idaho 20 (OT)
By Heather Dinich
Seven penalties, three turnovers, three scoreless quarters, and 5-of-16 third-down conversions.
And somehow, Virginia won.
Idaho's two-point conversion attempt in overtime failed, and Virginia escaped with a win. Just barely. But it still counts, and the Hoos desperately needed it, especially after back-to-back losses. No. 21-ranked and undefeated Georgia Tech is coming to town next. It could get ugly, especially if Virginia continues to turn the ball over and rack up penalties.
