CHARLOTTESVILLE—Mikell Simpson's career-high fourth rushing touchdown was the most by a Virginia player since Wali Lundy had four versus Temple in 2005. The single-game record is five, set by Gene Mayer against Richmond in 1915.
Simpson's four touchdowns are the most by any ACC player this season and most since Hakeem Nicks scored four against Boston College in 2008.
Retired jerseyFormer safety Anthony Poindexter had his No. 3 jersey retired in a pregame ceremony. A two-time All-American and the 1998 ACC Defensive Player of the Year, Poindexter is the Cavaliers' defensive backs coach.
He had to be pleased with a defensive backfield that produced two turnovers and helped hold Indiana to just seven points.
"He has to be proud of what he saw today, and I'm glad we were able to play like this for him," said senior Vic Hall. "He was a great player and is a great coach, and it's nice to have this day turn out like this."
