National sports briefs: Virginia’s unbeaten conference record silencing some critics

Associated Press
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. ó Virginia suddenly finds itself the only team in the ACC without a loss in league play. The Cavaliers have won three games in a row, including two in the ACC.
Virginia ó despite an 0-3 start ó will have to be viewed as contenders in the Coastal Division with a win against No. 11 Georgia Tech.
“Teams here and the players that have made up the teams, I think, are pretty strong believers that this is about one week at a time,” Cavaliers coach Al Groh said. “If you do the right things during the course of the week to really prepare yourself for a peak performance, you’ve got your best chance to get the result you want.”
The Yellow Jackets haven’t won at Scott Stadium since 1990.
n STORRS, Conn. ó A Bloomfield man will be arrested in the stabbing death of a University of Connecticut football player, his lawyer said Monday as police continued to sort out what happened during a fight outside a school-sponsored dance over the weekend.
Attorney Deron Freeman declined to identify his client but says the man and several others got into a fight “with about six” UConn football players early Sunday. Freeman says his client did not stab Jasper Howard but was present when Howard was mortally wounded.
n KNOXVILLE, Tenn. ó Alabama denied a request by Tennessee to wear its home orange jerseys on the road against the Tide, Volunteers coach Lane Kiffin said.
Under a new NCAA rule for 2009, both teams may wear their colored home jerseys if the home team and the home team’s conference agree. Kiffin said the SEC approved the request.
n NORMAN, Okla. ó Sam Bradford has been ruled out of No. 25 Oklahoma’s game this week at 24th-ranked Kansas, but coach Bob Stoops says any decision beyond that is yet to come.
COLLEGE HOOPS
STANFORD, Calif. ó Stanford freshman Andy Brown will miss the season with a left knee injury.
SOCCERCHICAGO ó American defender Oguchi Onyewu will have surgery Wednesday to repair a ruptured patellar tendon in his left knee.
