Mel Kiper This game was really a tale of two halves. UVA did a really good job of taking advantage of what Minnesota gave up. Virginia outscored Minnesota 24-10 in the second half thanks in large part to Marques Hagans. (He will be a WR/PR in the NFL.) Defensive end Chris Long had a great second half, too. Also, give the Virginia coaching staff credit; remember four assistant coaches are leaving this program. That left a lot of responsibility to Al Groh. -- Mel Kiper
