Virginia is not going to a bowl game.

A week before bowl announcements are due, on Dec. 20, the Cavaliers announced they will not be entertaining an invitation to a postseason game.

The school said the decision came after the program’s captains and other leaders met with the team to discuss the postseason.

The 5-5 Cavaliers had their regular season end Saturday in a 33-15 loss at Virginia Tech.

Virginia fell short of the ACC’s desire that all schools play 11 games when its game at Florida State was postponed because of COVID-19 concerns.
