College Park, MD (Sports Network) - Rashawn Jackson scored the only offensive touchdown of the day as he helped lead the Virginia Cavaliers to a 20-9 win over the Maryland Terrapins in ACC action at Byrd Stadium.

Quarterback Jameel Sewell converted 13-of-23 passing for 137 yards, but was sacked five times on the day.
For the Terps (2-5, 1-2), who have lost two in a row and four of the last five contests, Chris Turner made good on just 16-of-38 passing for 158 yards and was intercepted twice as the Maryland offense actually outgained the visitors, 284-201.

In the second frame Maryland's Nick Ferrara converted a pair of field goals of his own, measuring 48 and 30 yards, to give the Terps a 6-3 edge at the break.
With 6:08 to play in the third Ferrara, who finished the outing 3-of-5 on field goal attempts, knocked through a 29-yard effort to extend the team's lead to six points.
Randolph responded with a 31-yard effort with 2:02 to play in the period, followed moments later by an interception by Nate Collins which he returned 32 yards for a Virginia score, giving the Cavaliers a 13-9 advantage.
After taking over possession on downs late in the final period, Jackson made his way into the end zone, while an interception by Dom Joseph on the ensuing Maryland possession completed the victory for the Cavaliers.
Virginia picked up the win despite rushing for a mere 63 net yards on 38 attempts and registering just nine first downs on the afternoon.
