The Virginia Cavaliers put up a valiant effort on the road in College Park, but come up short in a 27-26 loss against the Maryland Terps.
Cavs field goal kicker Alec Vozenilek kicked three field goals on the day – though the one that will be remembered is the 42-yard attempt sailed wide right with 10 seconds remaining, which would have won the game.
Quarterback David Watford went 27 for 44 for 263 yards and a score. Tight end Jake McGee had eight catches for 114 yards. Kevin Parks ran for 112 yards and a touchdown, and Khalek Shepherd contributed 81 yards rushing to an offense that amassed 505 yards.
Looking at the stats alone you would’ve assumed that the Cavs won this game – but it was a definite heart breaker. To lose like this and extend a three game skid, makes for a long bus ride back to Charlottesville.
Marcus Mariota sprinted 71 yards for a TD on the opening drive and No. 2 Oregon never looked back on the way to a 59-10 blowout.
The Wahoos only big play came from a big run by Khalek Sheperd who showed he had some speed to match Oregon's.
