The Maryland Terrapins moved to 4-2 on the year, 2-0 in ACC play, with a 27-20 win over the Virginia Cavaliers on Saturday in Charlottesville. Once again, dynamic freshman Stefon Diggs played a key role in the victory, this time beginning the contest with a 103-yard kickoff return for touchdown. Footage, courtesy of the ACC Digital Network:
Oddly enough, the Cavaliers were apparently caught off guard by Diggs' opening return. Via Patrick Stevens:
