After three straight losses and down 7-0 to Miami, Virginia really needed a big play to build on. They got it from tight end Tony Poljan who made one of the best catches of the college football season on Saturday for a huge touchdown.

With the ball down at the Miami 2, UVA quarterback Brennan Armstrong floated a pass to the back of the end zone.

Somehow Poljan managed to get the toe down for the unbelievable touchdown. That's a play the Cavaliers really needed and Virginia is now locked in a tight 7-7 game against the Hurricanes.
