 Brennan Armstrong, Virginia, Player News


  Brennan Armstrong threw for 383 yards and four touchdowns and Virginia beat Abilene Christian 55-15 on Saturday night. Armstrong completed just 16 passes, but the scoring throws covered 28 yards to Tony Poljan, 90 yards to Lavel Davis Jr., 56 yards to Keytaon Thompson and 52 yards to Ra'Shaun Henry as the Cavaliers made quick work of their Southland Conference foe. The Wildcats (1-5), who have had two games canceled because their scheduled opponents had coronavirus-related issues, were a late addition to Virginia's schedule when other nonconference options fell through, and they were clearly overmatched.

The Cavaliers (4-4) started slowly, but a 33-yard run by Armstrong got their offense untracked, and his 28-yard pass to Poljan got them on the board late in the first quarter. They ended the quarter with Armstrong hitting Davis over the middle, and the 6-foot-7 freshman outran cornerback Christopher Satterfield for the 90-yard score. Shane Simpson scored on a pair of 1-yard runs in the second quarter, the second to cap a 64-yard drive that used the last 30 seconds of the half. It came after the Wildcats drove for their first points of the night on Stone Earle's 2-yard pass to Kobe Clark. Earle was making his first start and just his second appearance. He finished 19 of 31 for 150 yards and also ran 13 times for 20 yards. - Virginia/AP College Football

  Brennan Armstrong ran for two touchdowns and passed for another and Virginia beat Louisville 31-17 on Saturday in a game that was pushed back a week by a COVID-19 outbreak among the Cardinals. Armstrong scored on runs of 8 and 9 yards, the latter with 4:29 remaining to give Virginia (3-4, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) a two-score cushion. He also hit Lavel Davis Jr. with a 9-yard scoring pass that gave the Cavaliers a 21-10 lead in the third quarter.

Quarterback Malik Cunningham gave the Cavaliers fits all day as he ran for a career-high 197 yards for the Cardinals (2-6, 1-6), but his first-quarter interception was returned 85 yards for a touchdown by Noah Taylor and he had the ball ripped out of his hands by Nick Grant at the end of 27-yard run, setting up Armstrong's second rushing score. The Cardinals were without seven players, but did not detail if any of the missing were COVID-related. Cunningham, who ran 20 times, was 13 for 21 throwing the ball for 161 yards. Armstrong, who rushed for 60 yards, finished 15 for 23 for 203 yards with an interception. - AP College Football

  In the team's 40-23 loss to Wake Forest, which Armstrong missed with a concussion, the offense lacked consistency at the quarterback position. As a passer, runner and leader, Armstrong brings all three when he's under center. "Brennan Armstrong, the way that he led this team today was just ridiculous," running back Wayne Taulapapa said after Saturday's win. With Armstrong spearheading the charge, Taulapapa believes more offensive fireworks sit on the horizon. UVa scored a season-high in points Saturday, scoring its most points against a top-25 team since dropping 48 on West Virginia in the 2002 Continental Tire Bowl. It's the first time UVa surpassed 40 points in an ACC game since a 48-14 victory over Duke last October. "I think this is the offense that we truly are," Taulapapa said. "We just got to show it every game." A healthy Armstrong remains critical for UVa's offensive hopes. His status moving forward dramatically affects the team's chances at ending the fall with a winning record. When he's on the field, the Cavaliers play their best football. - Charlottesville Daily Progress

  With his team's lead dwindling and his defense getting weary, Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall knew an extended drive might be just what the Cavaliers needed to hang on against No. 15 North Carolina's high-octane offense. A 15-play drive that took more than nine minutes off the clock and ended with a field goal gave the Cavaliers a 44-34 lead, which proved to be just enough. Virginia held on to snap a four-game skid, beating the Tar Heels 44-41 on Saturday night. The drive reached the Tar Heels' 10 before a third-down sack forced Virginia to settle for Brian Delaney's 35-yard field goal.

Brennan Armstrong threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, and Virginia scored 28 consecutive points before the exciting finish to its fourth straight win over the Tar Heels. Armstrong hit Shane Simpson for 71 yards, Ra'Shaun Henry for 18 and Tony Poljan for 17, the latter giving the Cavaliers (2-4, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) a 41-20 lead with 5:34 left in the third quarter. Two quick North Carolina touchdowns then made it interesting. The Tar Heels (4-2, 4-2) rallied behind a fantastic performance from quarterback Sam Howell and receiver Dyami Brown. The pair hooked up for three of Howell's four touchdown passes, covering 54, 10 and 13 yards, the last two with 51 seconds left in the third quarter and then with 13:09 left in the game. - AP College Football

  Starting quarterback Brennan Armstrong is day-to-day for the Cavaliers after suffering a concussion Saturday against N.C. State. There's a chance he plays Saturday, but it's no guarantee. Should he miss the game, Lindell Stone will receive the starting nod. Stone completed 30 of his 54 passes Saturday in relief of Armstrong, throwing for 240 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Mississippi State transfer Keytaon Thompson is expected to remain at wide receiver for the time being. "Very, very early on, he had a shoulder injury that was aggravated," Mendenhall said of Thompson's fall camp performance. "That really precluded him from being able to play that position effectively at that time." The Cavaliers want Thompson, who is an exceptional athlete, on the field, so he made the move to wide receiver while dealing with shoulder pain. It appears he'll remain there with Stone acting as the primary backup for the Wahoos should Armstrong miss time. - Charlottesville Daily Progress

  Despite starting the game 1-for-8, Virginia quarterback Brennan Armstrong developed into a rhythm. He finished the game completing 24 of his 43 passes for 270 yards and three touchdowns. He also tossed a pair of interceptions. On the ground, Armstrong ran hard. The quarterback carried the ball 22 times for 89 yards, showing a willingness to rush the ball to pick up first downs for the Wahoos. "I knew coming into the game, just don't be afraid to tuck and run it," Armstrong said. "I was ready mindset wise to go do that."

In just his second collegiate start, Armstrong went into Death Valley and helped guide an offensive attack to more than 400 yards. Since the start of last season, the only other quarterbacks to help an offense surpass 400 total yards against Clemson are Justin Fields of Ohio State and 2020 NFL Draft No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow, who played collegiately at LSU. "He did amazing," Mendenhall said. "Brennan is tough mentally and physically. The stage wasn't too big, the team wasn't too good. I was really pleased with his mindset, his execution, his leadership. He did a really nice job." - Charlottesville Daily Progress

  Virginia quarterback Brennan Armstrong has only started one game in his college career, but Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has seen enough to compare him to an all-time great. Swinney said Armstrong looked like "a young Steve Young out there" last Saturday in Virginia's 38-20 win over Duke. The sophomore completed 24 of 45 passes for 269 yards against the Blue Devils, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Armstrong also rushed for 47 yards and a score. "He's a challenge. He's a problem. He's a really good player," Swinney said. "He looks like a young Steve Young out there. Lefty, crafty, creative, extends plays, tough runner, really good size, accurate thrower, really has no fear. Puts the ball up and trusts his guys to make competitive plays."

Young, a three-time Super Bowl champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer, was named the NFL MVP in 1992 and 1994. He starred at BYU before beginning his NFL career and is also in the College Football Hall of Fame. Armstrong will obviously have a tough time reaching any of those accolades, but Tigers defensive coordinator Brent Venables echoed Swinney in stating that he was impressive in his first start. "I thought Armstrong really had a lot of poise and managed the game well and played really big when they needed him to," Venables said of the 6-foot-2, 215 pounder. "He's a tough guy to emulate, just his sheer size. He's a big athlete back there that can throw it and run it both, so a tough guy to emulate to say the least." - The State

  The Brennan Armstrong era at Virginia began Saturday. It went how you might expect a redshirt sophomore's first college start to go. Throughout the night, the left-handed quarterback had highs and lows. He completed 24 of his 45 passes for 269 yards. He found freshman wide receiver Lavel Davis Jr. for two touchdowns, but he also tossed two interceptions. On the ground, Armstrong showcased quickness and a willingness to lower his shoulder. He turned 10 carries into 47 yards and a touchdown. Armstrong's debut ended with a victory, and he showcased raw talent, but there's plenty to work on ahead of next week. "He's tough, he's competitive and he's resilient," Mendenhall said. "It was a slow start. Momentum was being generated with every repetition and there's lessons that were being learned the whole step of the way." - Charlottesville Daily Progress

  Brennan Armstrong and Lavel Davis Jr. teamed up on a pair of early fourth-quarter touchdown passes and Virginia rallied past Duke, 38-20, on Saturday night. Armstrong hit Davis, a freshman, on an 18-yard fade route in the left corner of the end zone to give the Cavaliers (1-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) a 24-20 lead. After Joey Blount's interception, he hit him for 26 yards, with Davis pulling away from two Duke defenders about eight yards from the end zone and powering his way in. The Blue Devils (0-3, 0-3), whose games have all come in the season debut of their opponent, turned the ball over seven times after hurting their cause with five turnovers last week in a loss to Boston College.

Their start is their worst since the 2010 team lost its first six games. Wayne Taulapapa ran for a pair of touchdown for the Cavaliers, including a 10-yard burst with about 5 minutes left that put the game away. It came after Duke backup quarterback Gunnar Holmberg fumbled the ball on a fourth-and-1 play from the Blue Devils' 29. Armstrong finished 24 for 45 for 269 yards in his first career start with two interceptions. Taulapapa gained 95 yards, a career-high, on 16 carries. The Cavaliers have now won six straight in the series. - AP College Football

  For the past two seasons as Virginia's backup quarterback, Brennan Armstrong's routine on game days consisted mostly of watching Bryce Perkins confound defenses. Armstrong would be certain to pay attention, though, to how the Cavaliers' dynamic dual-threat starter commanded the huddle, earning supreme respect and confidence from teammates and coaches. He especially admired Perkins's poise in the pocket when chaos unfolded around him. Those qualities and then some came via meticulous preparation, Armstrong observed, over countless hours of quarterback meetings and film study, allowing Perkins to be ready for virtually any contingency. "The one thing I picked up with Bryce was he did not let a lot of time go to waste," Armstrong said. "When we have school, we have school, but when we didn't, it was trying to get with the receivers and dial in a few things. Obviously we're different styles of leadership, but he didn't waste time. "That's one thing I try to carry over with my leadership style." - Baltimore Sun

  When Bryce Perkins graduated, Brennan Armstrong assumed the role of the Virginia football team's No. 1 quarterback. When Bronco Mendenhall brought in Mississippi State transfer Keytaon Thompson over the offseason, the No. 1 spot became a toss-up. While the starting quarterback for the 2020 fall season is still to be determined, Armstrong holds the edge through the first two weeks of camp. "Right now the slight nod would go to Brennan Armstrong if I was choosing today," Mendenhall said Friday, "but we're four weeks out."

Armstrong holds an advantage in understanding the offense, having spent years learning Robert Anae's offensive system. The left-handed quarterback draws praise from teammates for elite spatial awareness and feel. While Armstrong isn't Perkins, he moves well in and out of the pocket. He can tuck the football and run, keeping quarterbacks runs within the offensive design should he earn the starting nod come September. Players like Armstrong, who is becoming more vocal as a leader, and he's a reliable and promising option at the position. - Charlottesville Daily Progress

  The key returner in the position group is Brennan Armstrong. He served as Perkins' backup a season ago, and he's expected to be in contention for the starting quarterback job in 2020. Armstrong, a left-handed quarterback from Ohio, enters his third season in the program as a redshirt sophomore. He's an accurate passer with a good understanding of what's going on around him. While he isn't Perkins in terms of athletic ability, Armstrong possesses solid quickness as a runner and he's considered a dual-threat quarterback. He won't break off 70-yard touchdown runs like Perkins, but Armstrong can move the chains with his legs. - Charlottesville Daily Progress
