UPDATE: Weather delay down in Charlottesville.  Donuts falling from the sky and such.  It's a weird scene.  They're looking to start around 4:00.

You guys! 

I've never been to Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. I understand that Bucknell University is located there.  I am, therefore, of the opinion that Lewisburg is the hardest working town in the hardest working state in the hardest working country in the hardest working world.

Or something like that.

It's going to a contrast in styles today down in Charlottesville: Virginia is going to want to wind the RPM's to red-line status; Bucknell would rather turn this thing into a defensive slobbernocker and let their midfield run free throughout the game. 

The Bison are no joke having completed their Patriot League run with an unblemished record; Virginia is looking to salvage a season that approached tailspin status as the sunset of their campaign loomed.

The opportunity for an upset starts at 3:00 on ESPNU.

Justin will be along to provide some in-game commentary and post-game thoughts.  He'll rock this all out right after the jump.  Your comments are valuable as well, so leave all of those beautiful bon mots in the handy dandy commenting device.
