For the second week in a row and for the final time this season, the University of Maryland Terrapins went on the road. This time, however, they got the victory over the natural rival Virginia Cavaliers.
With the win, Maryland moves to 7-3 overall and 4-2 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. They are in contention to compete for the ACC title, but they have to win their remaining games against Florida State and NC State.
Danny O’Brien appears to be the real deal at quarterback. He didn’t throw an interception and led Maryland down the field against the Virginia defense all game.
The defense came up big again, picking off Cavaliers’ quarterback Marc Verica two times in the fourth quarter.
One major issue the Terps have to correct is their special teams. Special teams gave up too many yards and a touchdown on a field goal by Virginia. If Maryland wants to get by their next two opponents, the special teams needs to tighten up their play.
Overall, Maryland played well in their victory over Virginia.
