Virginia canceled its rivalry game against Virginia Tech that was scheduled for Saturday following the slaying of three football players on campus just over a week ago.
The university announced the cancelation Monday night, a day after a nearly two-hour memorial service to remember Lavel Davis Jr., Devin Chandler and D’Sean Perry.
The three student-athletes were fatally shot on Nov. 13 after a field trip to see a play in Washington. Mike Hollins, also a Virginia football player, and student Marlee Morgan were injured.
Authorities claim a former member of the Virginia football team, Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., began shooting at students on the bus as it pulled to a stop at a campus parking garage. A witness told police the gunman targeted specific individuals and shot one while he slept, a prosecutor said in court last week.
The 23-year old Jones faces second-degree murder and other charges stemming from the shooting. He is currently being held without bond.
Virginia also canceled a game against No. 23 Coastal Carolina last Saturday.
Neither the Cavaliers or Hokies have anything to lose by choosing not to play.
