CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Brennan Armstrong will be returning to play football for UVA for one more season. He tweeted as much on Thursday night.

Throwing for an average of 404.5 yards per game, the Cavaliers quarterback finished second in the nation in that department. 

He also threw for 31 touchdowns on the season. 

Armstrong came up 145 yards short of the single season yardage record for ACC quarterbacks. He didn't get a chance to break that record in the UVA bowl game which got cancelled.
