Recap: Maryland vs. Connecticut

College Park, MD (Sports Network) - Lyle McCombs rushed for 94 yards and a touchdown as the Connecticut Huskies held on to defeat the Maryland Terrapins, 24-21, in non-conference action at Byrd Stadium.

Scott McCummings added 44 yards and a score on the ground for the Huskies (2-1), who bounced back after a 10-7 loss to North Carolina State last week. Chandler Whitmer completed 10-of-16 passes for 68 yards and added 17 yards rushing as well.

For Maryland (2-1), Perry Hills went just 10-of-24 for 109 yards with an interception, although he did have two total touchdowns. Wes Brown rushed for 74 yards and a score, while Stefon Diggs had three catches and led all receivers with 57 yards.

The Huskies got the scoring started midway through the first quarter when Nick Williams returned a punt 58 yards for a touchdown.

UConn extended its lead to 14-0 early in the second quarter on a McCummings three-yard touchdown run.

Maryland responded on its ensuing possession with an eight-play drive that lasted less than two minutes, capping it off with a 19-yard rushing score by Wes Brown. The score remained 14-7 in UConn's favor until halftime.

The Huskies added a 34-yard field goal from Chad Christen late in the third quarter to put them up by 10.

At the start of the fourth quarter, Hills connected for a 29-yard touchdown pass to Diggs to bring the Terrapins to within three, 17-14. The score punctuated a 10-play, 75-yard drive.

UConn brought its lead back to double digits later in the quarter following an 11-yard touchdown run from McCombs.

The Terrapins would not go away quietly, as a Hills 10-yard touchdown run with 4:39 left in regulation made their deficit just three, 24-21.

After forcing a UConn punt, Maryland had the ball with a chance to put together one more drive, but turned the ball over on downs as UConn held on to win.

The Huskies' defense made a huge difference, holding Maryland to just 205 total yards. Yawin Smallwood and Sio Moore each recorded three sacks.
