CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- For a second-straight week, the Virginia defense will face a quarterback that can make plays with both their arm and feet. 

James Madison redshirt senior quarterback Jordan McCloud will get the start this weekend after a strong second-half performance in the Dukes 38-3 win over Bucknell last weekend. After sitting the first half, McCloud came into the game and went 7-for-11 for 144 yards and two touchdowns. 

His throwing ability was on full display in the game last week, but the Cavalier defense are also keying in on his ability to scramble and make plays with his feet. 

"Guys that are athletic are hard to handle," defensive coordinator John Rudzinski said this week. "[Jordan is] one of those guys and he'll be a great challenge for us on Saturday." 

UVA senior cornerback Sam Westfall is one of the few players on the team that has had experience playing against McCloud. The two faced off in 2020 when McCloud played for South Florida and Westfall for SMU. 

"I remember he was a young guy at that time too, but he scrambled a lot and he made our defensive lineman really work, he said. I don't remember us getting to many sacks on him and that's going to be a big thing. Just condensing the pocket and getting to the quarterback."

JMU redshirt sophomore Kaelon Black will make that challenge much more difficult for the Cavalier defense after coming off his best performance of his career, rushing for 125 rushing yards in their win last weekend. 

"What we got to do is play great run defense this weekend against frankly, an offense that is very balanced, but that's committed to running the football."
