A major college football program's players are reportedly refusing to speak to the media this week.

Virginia's players have reportedly made a decision to not speak with reporters in anticipation of this weekend's rivalry game.

The Cavaliers' reporters were reportedly informed of the decision today.

"We've just been told that #UVA's players won't be available to the media this week. The players were given the choice and they opted to not do interviews. Not a great look from an ACC program during rivalry week," a beat reporter tweeted.

Virginia is set to play Virginia Tech on Friday.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. E.T. on ABC.
