Coach: Virginia starting QB a game-day decision

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Greyson Lambert's tenure as the face of Virginia football didn't even last until halftime of the season opener. He was replaced by Matt Johns, and the redshirt sophomore played the rest of the way.

Coach Mike London says he'll decide Saturday who will start when Virginia hosts Richmond.

London also says he's employing a higher accountability standard this season.

He says an offensive lineman that jumped offsides in a 28-20 loss to No. 7 UCLA this weekend was pulled from the game, and so was a wide receiver that lined up wrong, leading to a penalty.

The most noticeable hook, though, came for Lambert after a bad interception that was returned for a touchdown. It was UCLA's third defensive touchdown of the second quarter, and Lambert's last play.
