On Monday night, the Atlantic Coast Conference officially canceled the Virginia football game against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, which was scheduled to take place this Saturday, November 26th. In a press release, the ACC said “the decision was made following communication between the Atlantic Coast Conference, Virginia and Virginia Tech athletic department administration. 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 decision from the ACC to cancel Saturday’s Commonwealth Clash comes a little more than a week after the tragic passing of three UVA football players. Following the passing of Lavel Davis Jr., Devin Chandler, and D’Sean Perry, the Cavaliers canceled their last home game of the season against Coastal Carolina, which was scheduled to take place this past weekend.
With this year’s Commonwealth Clash canceled, Virginia’s 2022 football season is officially over with a 3-7 record.
