Maryland Vs. Virginia: Quarterback Marc Verica Cuts Maryland's Lead To 21-17

While the Terrapins have been using the long ball to set up their two most recent touchdowns, Virginia has been more content to use a more methodical style of play.

The Cavaliers needed only six plays to drive the ball 71 yards for a touchdown.

Marc Verica and Keith Payne were the main stars of the drive, as Viriginia only saw a second down once on the entire drive. Payne gained 18-yards on the ground and Verica gained 53-yards through the air, including a 1-yard touchdown pass to cut Maryland's lead to four points. Verica connected with Jeremiah Mathis, who is listed as a defensive end, for the team's third score of the game.
