After the early score, TCU struck again in the first half after Kevin Parks fumbled in his own territory.

Virginia, which hadn’t forced a turnover all season, forced two Saturday, and both saved touchdowns. Maurice Canady (Varina) picked up an interception on third and goal, and Daquan Romero forced a fumble out of the end zone that kept TCU receiver Skye Dawson from scoring, and gave U.Va. the ball on the 20.

TCU (3-0) also was twice held to a field goal in the second half, keeping the game within reach.

“Whenever they get the ball, you’ve got to have the mindset of, ‘They can’t get a touchdown,’. ” U.Va. coach Mike London said. “That’s one of the things I think we did today — they bent but didn’t break.”

Despite hanging around and getting breaks from TCU, Virginia never came close to making it a game.

The ‘Hoos (2-2) won’t have to face a top-25 team every week, but they know to make noise in the ACC, it’s going to require more points than they’ve scored in the past three weeks.
