Virginia's Keith Payne gets flipped on his way into the end zone from a yard out. It was the first score of his career.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Chris Gould kicked a 19-yard field goal with 3:20 to play Saturday and mistake-prone Virginia won its sixth consecutive game and knocked Connecticut from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 17-16 victory.


The Cavaliers (6-1) trailed 16-14 and had struggled on offense before driving 79 yards to Gould's second game-winner in as many weeks. Last Saturday, his 34-yarder with 8 seconds left gave Virginia a 23-21 win at Middle Tennessee.

Quarterback Jameel Sewell completed a 30-yard pass to Chris Gorham and an 8-yarder to Tom Santi on third-and-5 during the winning drive, then tried to run it in on a draw play on third-and-goal from the 7. He was tackled just shy of the goal line.


In South Bend, Ind., Matt Ryan threw for 291 yards and two touchdowns, Andre Callender scored three times and No. 4 Boston College beat Notre Dame.

Boston College is 7-0 for just the fifth time in 107 seasons, the first time since 1942, and beat its rival Notre Dame for the fifth consecutive time.


In Durham, N.C., Sean Glennon threw for 258 yards and two touchdowns in relief of injured Tyrod Taylor and Virginia Tech's defense shut down Duke.

Eddie Royal and Branden Ore scored for the Hokies.
