Virginia cancels Virginia Tech game after football player’s death

Virginia canceled its game against rival Virginia Tech scheduled for Saturday after three football players were murdered on campus just over a week ago.

The university made the announcement Monday evening, a day after a nearly two-hour memorial service to remember Lavel Davis Jr., Devin Chandler and D’Sean Perry. The three were shot and killed after a field trip to see a play in Washington. Two others were injured.

Former Virginia football player Christopher Darnell Jones Jr. faces three counts of second-degree murder and other charges.

Virginia also canceled its game last weekend against No. 23 Coastal Carolina.
