A re-broadcast of the 2007 Virginia football team’s game at Miami is set to air on the ACC Network Saturday at 4 p.m. Players from that game will participate in a Watch Party hosted by Groh as part of the athletics department’s Wahoowa Saturday events.

The game was the last regular-season contest held at the Orange Bowl. Before a capacity crowd, the Cavaliers stunned the Hurricanes, winning 48-0.

Groh will be joined by quarterback Jameel Sewell, offensive lineman Eugene Monroe, running back Mikell Simpson, defensive end Chris Long and linebacker Clint Sintim.

Players will join Groh for the Watch Party on a quarter-by-quarter basis.
