While it has taken a bit longer for teams and conference to get their schedules together for the 2021 season due to the Coronavirus outbreak and various restrictions surrounding the virus, Schedule release schedule has finally begun!
The Virginia Cavaliers are the 30th DI team to release their full 2021 schedule and third ACC program to do so. The Cavaliers come into the 2021 season after going 4-2 during the shortened 2020 season.
Virginia’s Full 2021 Schedule
- 14-game schedule.
- Plays two ACC teams (Syracuse, North Carolina) twice.
Games to Circle
2/20 vs Loyola: Continuing a trend since 2014, the Cavaliers will play the Loyola Greyhounds in an early season contest. Last season, Virginia took a 9-3 lead at the half before the Greyhounds came back and made it a three-goal game early in the fourth. Virginia held onto the victory, 12-9.
2/24 & 4/24 @/vs Syracuse: During the last full season (2019), the Cavaliers played in five overtime contest last season, including three consecutive overtime wins against Princeton, Syracuse, and Brown in late February and early March. With the firepower both offense have, either one of their two meetings could end up like the contest we saw between the Cavaliers and Orange last season.
3/3 vs High Point: The High Point Panthers have had the Cavaliers number over the past few seasons. They pulled off the 14-13 upset in 2019 and gave them a tough time in 2020, where Virginia won 18-15. This ACC vs SoCon contests is certainly one to circle based on the recent history between these two squads.
