The Maryland Terrapins (4-2, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), won their fourth game of the season Saturday afternoon, doubling their total from all of last year. They beat the Virginia Cavaliers (2-5, 0-3) 27-20 behind another strong game from freshman sensation Stefon Diggs.
Diggs got the Terps started early with a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. The wide receiver also caught seven passes for 89 yards, with a long of 60 which came on a crossing pattern in the first half.
Maryland’s defense continued to show why they are a top-10 unit in the country. Stopping the Cavaliers on several drives and even blocking a field goal.
However, the game was too tight because the Terps still have trouble running the ball and Perry Hills still has trouble with fumbles. Also, Brad Craddock missed another field goal.
The Terps get closer to bowl eligibility and will face North Carolina State next.
