CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WAVY) – If any University of Virginia football fans took a peak at the team’s depth chart for this Saturday’s game against the University of Richmond, they’d notice a very familiar conjunction.
Once again, two quarterbacks will take first-team reps in practice, and once again, two are expected to see snaps when the Cavaliers take the field again.
Greyson Lambert, the redshirt sophomore anointed as the starting signal caller since the conclusion of Spring practice, threw for 112 yards and two interceptions that were returned for touchdowns in his debut against 7th-ranked UCLA. Matt Johns, also a sophomore, replaced Lambert near the end of the second quarter and made an immediate impact, throwing a 29-yard touchdown to Adnre Lavrone.
Head coach Mike London said on Monday that both Lambert and Johns will play against the Spiders, but he would not say who would take the field first. “Right now, there’s no answer to that,” said London at his weekly press conference, ” As I said, we’ll make the decision on Saturday as to who will be the starter.”
