Game Notes
Memorabilia
9/5/1987
at Georgia
L, 30-22
The Hoos go up 14-0 on two touchdown passes from
Scott Secules to John Ford, but Georgia reels off 30
straight points while racking up 394 rushing yards.
 
9/12/1987
at Maryland
L, 21-19
The Hoos fall to the Terps for the 16th (!) straight time
despite forcing four Maryland turnovers in the 3rd
quarter.
 
9/19/1987
vs. Virginia Tech
W, 14-13
Secules records two first-half touchdowns (1
passing, 1 rushing), and the Hoos rely on their "bend
but don't break" defense to hold on for the win.
9/26/1987
vs. Duke
W, 42-17
Secules accounts for four touchdowns (2 passing, 2
rushing) and John Ford finishes with 7 catches and a
career-high 163 yards and 2 touchdowns as the Hoos
knock off the previously unbeaten Blue Devils.
 
10/3/1987
vs. VMI
W, 30-0
VMI never enters Virginia territory, which is almost as
embarrassing as the attendance for this game
(23,500).
10/10/1987
at Clemson
L, 38-21
The Hoos fall to Clemson for the 27th straight time. On
a brighter note, John Ford finishes with 5 catches for
109 yards to become Virginia's all-time leader in
receiving yards.
10/17/1987
at South Carolina
L, 58-10
Luckily for the Hoos, Kevin Cook picks off 2 passes on
the goal line. Otherwise, this game might have gotten
out of hand.
 
10/24/1987
vs. Wake Forest
W, 35-21
I know I was at this game because I still have the
program, but I don't remember a single play. Man I'm old.
11/7/1987
at Georgia Tech
W, 23-14
The Hoos score the final 13 points of the game to pick
up their first road win of the season.
 
11/14/1987
vs. UNC
W, 20-17
The Hoos score two touchdowns in the final 4:44 to
clinch their first undefeated home season since 1951.
Phil Thomas finishes with 19 tackles, including a
school-record 16 solo tackles, 2 tackles for loss, and
an interception.
11/21/1987
at NC State
W, 34-31
The Hoos jump out to a 24-0 lead and then hold on for
dear life. Keith McMeans picks off 3 passes to finish
with a school-record and NCAA-leading 9
interceptions.
 
12/22/1987
vs. BYU
(All American Bowl)
W, 22-16
Secules passes for a touchdown and runs for another
as the Hoos pick up the second bowl victory in school
history.
