Streaking The Lawn: Pack Line Pledge #2: Virginia repeats 34-point defense against JMU

This also triggers an extra $16 donation for those who pledged the extra credit bonus. No weekday game this week means that we'll have to wait until Saturday before the next Pack Line Pledge opportunity.Forgot how much you pledged? Scroll to the bottom of this post.
