CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Poor Joe Hall.He's a starting defensive tackle for the nation's top-ranked college football team, the Virginia Cavaliers, but you probably haven't heard of him.In fact, unless he goes bowling with star quarterback Shawn Moore, nobody here in this suddenly delirious, pigskin-mad town recognizes him either. Which is more a statement of how popular the Heisman Trophy contender is than any of Hall's failings."I went bowling with Shawn a couple of weeks ago," Hall lamented the other day. "Everybody asked for autographs.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- After scoring a touchdown and running effectively in a 17-10 loss to Virginia on Saturday night, Navy fullback Brad Stramanak was asked whether there was any satisfaction playing tough against a team that was a 42-point winner over the Midshipmen a year ago."Can you really have success when you don't win?" Stramanak said. "It's a team game; you practice as a team and play as a team. I didn't have a good game -- if we don't win, my performance doesn't mean a thing."The Midshipmen may not have gained a victory against the Cavaliers on Saturday, but they left Scott Stadium with a sense of satisfaction.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The eyes of the college football world are focused on an unusual place today -- an Atlantic Coast Conference game with national significance.With a national television audience watching (2 p.m., channels 9 and 11), and with an overflow crowd of 48,000 squeezed into Scott Stadium, top-ranked Virginia and No. 16 Georgia Tech will try to stop each other's unbeaten streaks and bring an end to some wild dreams.The Cavaliers (7-0, 4-0 in the ACC) need a victory to maintain their No. 1 ranking, as well as their position as the leader of the pack in a race for this year's national championship.

Whoosh!!! Hey, was that The Rocket running away with the Heisman Trophy?With slightly more than two weeks left before the announcement, Notre Dame's all-purpose player Raghib "Rocket" Ismail seems to be the front-running candidate for college football's big award.Doesn't this all sound familiar?Ismail starts out deep behind Brigham Young quarterback Ty Detmer and Michigan's Jon Vaughn, then runs into a pile of others, including running backs Eric Bieniemy of Colorado and Darren Lewis of Texas A&M, then out-legs quarterbacks Shawn Moore of Virginia and David Klingler of Houston down the stretch.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- To answer your question, the University of Virginia football team is for real. Just not real enough.If you want to talk surreal, though, you've come to the right place.In the Augustlike heat of November, playing before students dressed in shirts and ties and shorts, trying to make history on a field that had been set afire -- though not exactly like Georgia -- in what must have been a midnight prank, Virginia lost a game, a No. 1 ranking, probably a conference championship, maybe a New Year's bowl and certainly an unlikely season full of wonder and awe.It was a weird and strange day, topped off by a weird and wonderful football game, which had some of everything, if you don't want to include defense.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Navy coach George Chaump said his team needed a superhuman effort to beat Virginia. But it may have taken Superman himself to contain Shawn Moore and the 11th-ranked Cavaliers.And perhaps even the Man of Steel would not have been enougfor Navy. Moore passed for four touchdowns and ran for two in just over a half of play, as Virginia smothered the visiting Midshipmen, 56-14, before 39,400 at Scott Stadium. The victory puts the Cavaliers (3-0 overall, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference)

,TC COLLEGE PARK -- Visions of a bowl game have faded. Dreams of an Atlantic Coast Conference title and a national ranking are gone. There seems to be only one way to salvage an already respectable season, and that's to have a winning one.The University of Maryland (5-5 overall, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) will try for its first winning season since 1985 when it meets No. 8 Virginia (8-1, 5-1) today (12:08 p.m.) at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Va."We weren't picked to win as many games as we have, yet we have won five," Maryland inside linebacker Scott Whittier said.
