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.

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.
