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.

“Just as we met at the beginning of the year to make the choice to play, this was their choice to end the season at this time. I think it is appropriate for this team." - Bronco Mendenhall@CBS6
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.
