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.
