The Cardinals, who came in averaging 40 points, have scored 48 points or more three times in six games.

Kevin Parks rushed for 104 yards and two touchdowns for the Cavaliers (2-3), which committed four turnovers and 13 penalties. Virginia has dropped three of its past four.

Edwards’ second touchdown, a 32-yard scamper with 1:26 left in the third quarter, snapped a 24-all tie, and the Cardinals extended their advantage to 34-24 on Scott Secor’s 45-yard field goal with 14:52 remaining. Virginia pulled within 34-27 on Alec Vozenilek’s 38-yard field goal with 10:41 to go, but Wenning’s 72-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Williams down the right sideline 39 seconds later made it 41-27 Cardinals.
