Virginia Vs. Maryland Final Score: Virginia Pounds Maryland, 31-13, Terps Fall To 2-7

The first half between Maryland and Virginia was evenly played. The second half was not, as UVA scored 17 unanswered points and won the game, 31-13. The result eliminates Maryland from bowl contention and ensures that Virginia will play in the postseason for the first time since 2007.

Virginia quarterback Michael Rocco controlled the game and looked like a world beater today against the Maryland defense. He ended the game with 310 yards passing on 22 completions out of 36 attempts. He threw two touchdowns and one interception. Cavalier running back Perry Jones finished the day with 137 yards rushing and two touchdowns, averaging six yards per carry. With gaudy statistics like these, the final score is no surprise.

Maryland played two quarterbacks throughout the game at alternate times. Neither accomplished much. C.J. Brown connected on a touchdown in the first half with Devonte Campbell, the only Terps touchdown of the day. Danny O'Brien ended the day 17 for 37 for 245 yards and two interceptions.

The Maryland defense, starting freshmen at multiple positions, was bullied along the line of scrimmage for much of the game. It also appeared that when Maryland brought a blitz, Virgina often had the perfect play called to counter the pressure.
