    Here are three Virginia players to watch for Saturday when the Cavaliers travel to Fort Worth:

    Michael Rocco, quarterback, junior

    Michael Rocco threw for 143 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions against ACC foe Georgia Tech last week. The junior from Lynchburg, Va., racked up 2,671 yards in the air last season, ranking No. 4 all-time at Virginia and No. 1 for a first-year quarterback.

    Anthony Harris, safety, sophomore

    Anthony Harris leads the Cavaliers with 25 tackles this season. His 14 solo tackles this year match his season total as a true freshman. Harris racked up eight tackles and forced a fumble against Georgia Tech last week.

    Oday Aboushi, offensive tackle, senior

    Offensive tackle Oday Aboushi has started the last 28 games for the Cavaliers. He is a member of ESPN.com’s Preseason All-America Team. The 2011 All-ACC second team selection made the Outland Trophy and Lombardi Award watch lists. Both awards are presented to outstanding college football linemen. Aboushi is also on the Senior Bowl watch list.
