CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Virginia knows it can't follow another big victory by going belly up again.
The Cavaliers beat a ranked Miami team last season, setting themselves up for a run at a bowl game, but instead lost the following week to Duke, and then dropped the next three games, too.
Making sure it doesn't happen again has been the focus this week as the Cavaliers (4-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) get ready to play North Carolina State (3-3, 0-2) on Saturday.
Defensive end Jake Snyder says Virginia brought a sense of the utmost confidence into the game against the Yellow Jackets, and needs to carry it over without taking anything for granted.
The Wolfpack is coming off a bye week and trying to get back into the ACC race.
