Maryland vs. Virginia Score Update: Mount Diggs Erupts, Terps Lead 17-0 After First

Despite Comcast Sportsnet's unwillingness to broadcast the first half of the first quarter, Maryland has had just about a perfect start in Charlottesville, and they lead the Cavaliers by a score of 17-0

Stefon Diggs returned the opening kick 100 yards for a touchdown, and after four Virginia offensive plays (including a big tackle for a loss by Jeremiah Johnson), true freshman Anthony Nixon got his first career interception, off a ball from Phillip Sims that was tipped, and Maryland quickly turned that into a score. After a first down by Diggs, Perry Hills lofted a screen pass to Justus Pickett. The running back cut inside and ran uncontested to the end zone for a 20-yard score, giving Maryland a 14-0 lead.

After a singular Cavalier first down, the Terrapin defense forced another punt, and it was again time for Diggs to shine. After a great catch by Kevin Dorsey gave the Terps a first down on their own 28 (the punt went to the Terps' 2), Diggs caught a 60-yard catch, weaving his way through the Cavalier defense and juking his way down near the goal-line. Brad Craddock hit a 33-yard field goal, making the score 17-0.

Hills has been great, completing five of six passes for 116 yards and the score to Pickett, while the Terps have not had to run the ball once. Devin Burns even came in for a two-play stint at quarterback, rushing once for three yards. Diggs has 164 yards on three touchdowns, and the Terps are dominating in every way in Charlottesville.
