UVa will celebrate Homecoming this weekend with a game against Maryland, and by retiring the jersey of former star Heath Miller. On the field, the Cavs will try to break a losing skid that's put their season on the brink.  

    Virginia has dropped four games in a row following Saturday's loss at Duke. In the past two games the Wahoos have actually outgained their opponents in total offense. But despite a quarterback change from Michael Rocco to Phillip Sims, the same two things are plaguing the Cavaliers. Penalties and a turnover margin now at minus 12, that's the worst in the country.

"It's frustrating when you get that setback," said offensive lineman Luke Bowanko. "But as an offense, at the end of the day, you've got to get in the endzone. We're trying to cut back on those things."

    Four of Virginia's next five games will be in Charlottesville.
