Press Conference: Mike London

Virginia football coach Mike London talks with members of the news media about his team.

UVa. (2-1, 0-0 ACC) will host Florida State (3-1, 1-0 ACC) on Saturday at noon.

Q. I have a question that doesn’t really pertain to this week’s opponent, but when you scheduled two FCS teams, did you think there might be some risk involved down the road in terms of Bowl consideration?

COACH LONDON: As I’ve answered in the past, this schedule was already made prior to me getting here, so we’re playing the schedule as the schedule has fallen. I don’t understand the formula as to why we played two FCS teams, but it is what it is for this year. We’re fortunate enough now to enter into conference play and open with a home game. Hopefully there will be a raucous crowd in a great venue as we welcome the Seminoles.
