Olamide Zaccheaus named ACC football wide receiver of the week
Zaccheaus (Plainfield, N.J.) amassed a school-record 247 receiving yards in UVA’s 45-31 win against Ohio in a game played at Vanderbilt Stadium. It marked the second most receiving yards by an FBS player this season and ties for the 10th best single-game total in ACC history. In setting the UVA single-game record, Zaccheaus eclipsed the 241 receiving yards by Ken Shelton in 1974 against William & Mary. Zaccheaus had scoring catches of 86 and 77 yards. The 86-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter was a career long and his third reception of 80 yards or more, which extends his UVA career record.
