With three wins in the first month of the season, Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall has been receiving praise from the same Cavaliers fans that suffered through a two-win campaign in his first year at the helm in 2016. Mendenhall and his improving quarterback Kurt Benkert will shoot for their fourth win of the season in five games Saturday when rejuvenated Duke visits after suffering its first defeat of the season last week.

The 2016 campaign was a tough one for Mendenhall and Virginia, losing the opener to FCS Richmond, while beating only Duke and Central Michigan and finishing with seven straight losses. However, the Cavaliers have responded this season with three wins by a combined 57 points sandwiched around a 34-17 loss to Indiana in Week 2. “When I was able to be out in a professional setting as the head coach (I was taken aback) that there’s a lot of people that are pulling for us,” Mendenhall said this week. “And that became clear. And that feedback has not been subtle but pretty overwhelming where I think there’s a lot of folks that would like to see UVA have a really good football program, have a really good year.” Virginia, which has not played since posting its third win of the season – a 42-23 decision at Boise State on Sept. 22 in which Benkert threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns and wideout Andre Levrone caught five passes for 141 yards and two scores. The Blue Devils, leaving the state of North Carolina for the first time this year, opened the season with four double-digit wins – matching its win total from 2016 – but was demolished by No. 12 Miami 31-6 last week.

Virginia was a 42-23 winner in their most recent outing on the road against Broncos. They covered the +13.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (65) made winners of OVER bettors.

Last time out for Duke, they were a 31-6 loser as they battled Hurricanes at home. Duke failed to cover in the match as a +5-point underdog, while 37 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
