Blount (Jr., Atlanta, Ga.) had 10 tackles and returned an interception 20 yards in UVA’s 48-14 victory against Duke. His interception led to UVA’s final touchdown of the game. Blount helped lead a UVA defense that held the Blue Devils to 73 yards of total offense in the first half and forced eight three-and-outs for the game.
