Virginia at Maryland Postgame Notes Oct. 1, 2005
Virginia's offensive line was revamped for this game. Brad Butler started at LT in place of D'Brickashaw Ferguson, who traveled but did not dress due to an injury suffered last week. Eddie Pinigis started at RT in Butler's place and Jordy Lipsey started at C in place of Brian Barthelmes, who also was injured last week. It was the first career start for Lipsey and Pinigis, while Butler made his first start at LT.
Ferguson's streak of consecutive starts ends at 42 games. DE Brennan Schmidt's streak moves to 43 consecutive starts.
Ian-Yates Cunningham saw his first action in two years at left guard in the second quarter. He missed last season due to a back injury and hadn't played yet this season.
Ahmad Brooks started at outside linebacker in his first action of the season. He had knee surgery in March and just recently returned to practice.
Nate Lyles intercepted his second pass of the season in the first half. He is the first UVa safety in intercept two passes in a season since Jermaine Hardy had two in 2003. Virginia's safeties have intercepted 3 passes this season after picking off only 1 last year.
Jonathan Stupar's 22-yard reception in the first quarter was the longest of his career, until his 24-yard gain in the third quarter. His 51 yards receiving are a career high, while his three receptions ties his high.
Chris Cook's 30-yard interception for a touchdown was his first interception of his career. It is UVa's first interception for a TD since Tony Franklin took one back 45 yards against Western Michigan in 2003. Muffin Curry returned an interception 23 yards for a score earlier in that game.
Connor Hughes' 43-yard field goal in the second quarter is his longest of the season and his longest since he made a 43-yarder at Georgia Tech last year.
Hughes' four field goals are his most since he booted five vs. Georgia Tech in 2003.
Hughes also ties Rafael Garcia with 272 career points, to share the modern day UVa scoring record (since 1937 as defined by the NCAA). Eugene Mayer (1912-15) holds the record with 293 points.
Fontel Mines' 59-yard reception in the fourth quarter is the longest of his career and longest for UVa this season.
Former UVa soccer goalie Ryan Best recorded his first career tackle on a kickoff return in the second quarter. It's thought that he is the first erstwhile soccer player to make a tackle at UVa.
Maryland's 570 yards of offense are the most allowed by UVa since allowing 627 yards to Georgia Tech in 2000.
