Maryland vs. Virginia Scoring Update: Virginia Strikes, Trail 17-13 After Three

After 12 minutes of largely no action, Virginia took advantage of Maryland's post-first quarter complacency, driving down the field on the back of Kevin Parks and a finally-effective Phillip Sims. Sims found E.J. Scott in the corner of the end zone for a 20-yard score, bringing the Cavaliers within seven.

On the first play of Maryland's next drive, the zone-read exchanged between Perry Hills and Albert Reid went awry, forcing a fumble that Virginia recovered. The Cavaliers moved down the field quickly, and Ian Frye hit a 22-yard field goal to make it 17-13.

Kevin Parks has been extremely effective for Virginia, rushing 13 times for 127 yards, while Sims is still struggling (10/23 for 117 yards). Perry Hills is 9/18 for 187 yards and a score, and has found consistent success from Stefon Diggs (three receptions, 88 yards), Marcus Leak (two receptions, 41 yards) and Justus Pickett (three receptions, 31 yards). The Terps have still been unable to get anything going on the ground, rushing 19 times for -3 yards, but they're driving now after a 34-yard kick return from Diggs and a nice scramble by Hills.
