Despite averaging just 3.7 yards per carry on the game, Virginia running back Wayne Taulapapa bruised his way into the end zone twice for the Virginia Cavaliers en route to a 33-28 victory over Georgia Tech earlier today.

Virginia (7-3, 5-2 ACC) clinched a winning season and remain atop the Coastal Division standings with the win. Taulapapa, the former Punahou tailback, carried the rock 10 times for 37 yards on the day but managed two touchdowns in the win.

On the season, Taulapapa leads the Cavaliers with 11 rushing touchdowns through 10 games.

Virginia will have a bye week before moving on to play Liberty on Saturday, November 23rd.
