Alec Vozenilek missed a potential game-winning 42-yard field goal as Virginia fell on the road at Maryland, 27-26. The Cavaliers fall to 2-4 on the season and 0-2 in the ACC.

The Cavaliers had the ball on their own 17 with just over two minutes remaining and no timeouts. Quarterback David Watford led the Wahoos down the field to set up Vozenilek's potential game-winner from 42 yards. The back--up kicker had already drilled four field goals on the day but his fifth sailed wide.

Kevin Parks had 116 yards rushing and a touchdown and Jake McGee hauled in eight catches for 114 yards and a score as well. Watford had nearly 300 yards of total offense.

The Cavaliers led 16-14 at the half, only to see Maryland take a 20-16 lead into the fourth.

That's when Parks scored on a seven yard run to push the Hoos ahead, 23-20.

A Vozenilek field goal made it 26-20 when Maryland's Caleb Rowe hit Dave Stinebaugh in the endzone to give the Terps a 27-26 lead that would hold up.

Virginia will be back at Scott Stadium next Saturday when it hosts Duke.
