CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Stefon Diggs returned the opening kickoff 100 yards, and Perry Hills threw for one touchdown and ran for another as Maryland defeated Virginia 27-20 in Atlantic Coast Conference action on Saturday.
The kickoff return started a horrendous first quarter for Virginia (2-5, 0-3), which has now lost five in a row. A 20-yard touchdown pass from Hills to Justus Pickett put Maryland (4-2, 2-0) up 14-0 less than five minutes into the game.
Virginia pinned the Terrapins at their own 2, but a 27-yard pass from Hills to Kevin Dorsey and a 60-yard catch-and-run by Diggs led to Brad Craddock's 33-yard field goal to make it 17-0.
Hills added a 6-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
Phillip Sims and backup Michael Rocco threw touchdown passes for Virginia.
