Game balls: N.C. State 38, Virginia 21



Billy Kemp IV, WR: The slot receiver remains UVa’s most productive player. He posted his second consecutive 10-catch performance of the season, hauling in 10 balls for 82 yards and his first touchdown of the fall. Despite a shaky game from the Wahoos on offense, Kemp IV stayed steady.


D’Angelo Amos, S: Amos struggled at times to bring down N.C. State players, allowing them to pull him for extra yards. Overall, though, he led the Wahoos with 10 tackles after stepping into a starting role with Joey Blount injured and out. The FCS transfer has shown he belongs at the Power 5 level in three games with the Wahoos.

Special teams

Vi Jones, LB and Nash Griffin, P: Another mostly forgettable game on special teams gives part of this week's honor to N.C. State’s Jones. He blocked Nash Griffin’s punt in the third quarter. Griffin did complete a 26-yard pass to Nick Jackson later in the quarter, though. The fake punt jump pass wasn't fundamentally sound by traditional passing standards, but it gave UVa a needed spark and likely made Tim Tebow smile.
