Signs of improvement keep coming for Virginia's offense, but when those gains will translate into a victory remains to be seen.

The Cavaliers (2-6, 0-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) hope it happens Saturday when they face No. 9 Clemson in the teams' first meeting since 2009.

Quarterback David Watford and receivers Tim Smith and Darius Jennings had career days a week ago, but Virginia failed to turn any of five turnovers into points in a 35-25 loss to Georgia Tech. The Cavaliers have forced 15 turnovers, but turned them into just 13 points.

Clemson (7-1, 5-1) beat Maryland 40-27 last week. The Tigers need to win out and hope No. 3 Florida State loses twice to claim the Atlantic Division title.
