The Cavaliers outscored the Spiders 7-2 in the first quarter to take an early lead. Five different Cavaliers dented the scoreboard to pace the UVA attack. Trailing 1-0, Matt Moore tied the game, 1-1, with 9:06 left in the opening frame.
Wheeler has 27 tackles. No other Spider has more than 16. That whole group of linebackers are really good players and good kids, but Wheels has not only got a lot of ability, but he’s got football smarts, he’s got some savvy about him, he’s got instincts about him,” UR coach Russ Huesman said.
