Virginia's blunder-filled loss to UConn was one of the worst games of the 2016 college football season.

December 14, 2016

It was a rough first season for Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall, as the Cavaliers won just two games and got blown out by rival Virginia Tech 52–10 in the season finale. But one loss that may stick with Mendenhall is Virginia’s Sept. 17 defeat to UConn. The Cavaliers blew a 10–0 lead, including a fourth-quarter interception that set up the tying score. However, trailing 13–10 with 1:33 left, they executed a superb late drive, reaching the UConn three-yard line with 20 seconds left. All they needed was a 20-yard field goal from kicker Alex Furbank force overtime.
