Maryland 28, Virginia 26

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Keon Lattimore ran 56 yards for the
go-ahead touchdown and Erin Henderson returned an interception 45
yards for another score as Maryland rallied for a 28-26 victory
over Virginia on Saturday.

The Terrapins (4-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) trailed 20-0
before staging their comeback.

It started when Emmanuel Byers muffed a punt early in the second
half and Maryland recovered at the Virginia 1. Lance Ball scored on
the next play, and Maryland scored three more TDs before Virginia
contributed some drama at the end.

The Cavaliers (2-5, 1-2) had a chance to tie with 2:37 left when
Jameel Sewell hit Kevin Ogletree with a 44-yard touchdown pass, but
Terps defensive back Josh Wilson -- beaten twice for TDs by the
receiver -- helped break up a 2-point pass to Ogletree.

The victory was the first for the visiting team in five meetings
between the Terps with Ralph Friedgen as coach and Virginia under
Al Groh. Last season, Maryland scored 21 points in the fourth
quarter in a 45-33 win.

After a 255-yard first half, Virginia managed just three first
downs in the third quarter. The Cavaliers still led 21-7, but were
clearly on their heels.

Sam Hollenbach ran 3 yards for a touchdown on the second play of
the final quarter, and the Terps held Virginia without a first
down. Five plays after the Terps took over at their 16, Lattimore
burst through the line and down the right sideline almost
untouched.

Two plays after the kickoff, Henderson stepped in front of
Sewell's pass for Tom Santi at the Terps 45 and the linebacker
outran everyone down the other side.

In 6:11, Maryland had scored 21 points and taken a 28-20 lead.

Fans who weren't streaming to the exits saw Sewell drive the
Cavaliers to the Maryland 21 before his 6-yard run and three
incompletions gave the ball back.

After a Maryland punt, Sewell found Ogletree behind Wilson down
the middle of the field on the first play. But Wilson also had
Ogletree on the 2-point pass, and was there to help break up the
attempt.

Hollenbach was 17-for-28 for 171 yards, and Sewell was 13-for-21
for 243. He also ran 10 times for 92 yards, including a 36-yard
touchdown on Virginia's first series.

Ogletree caught three passes for 133 yards.
