On September 12th, UVA plays its first home game of the 2015 season against the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Forget that Notre Dame is ranked in the Top 10 in many preseason polls. Forget that UVA’s last 2 home openers, both against preseason Top 10 teams (Oregon in 2013 and UCLA in 2014), resulted in bitter, and in the game against Oregon, lopsided defeats. We UVA football fans have learned to live with adversity, and as we always say, “this year will be different.” We are eternal optimists.
Whether the ‘Hoos win or lose, if you just love the atmosphere that is college football, come out to Scott Stadium for a game, and then stay at The Inn at Monticello. The ‘Hoos play 7 home games this fall, against some of the toughest opponents (like Notre Dame) in the nation. Should be exciting, to say the least.
