Gaskins was the Spiders' leading rusher and also caught a touchdown pass in Saturday's season-opener at Virginia, marking the second time in as many games he has scored against the Cavaliers. He reached the end zone on a 70-yard run at UVa in 2010. Reggie Barnette tied for team high honors for tackles in Saturday's game with 12, giving him 21 stops in his past two games, dating back to last year's season finale against William & Mary.
Throughout the season, new interactive features will be added to the show, including ticket giveaways and prizes.
