COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Freshman Stefon Diggs took a short pass 63 yards to set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Justus Pickett with 5:37 left, and Maryland opened the Atlantic Coast Conference portion of its schedule with a 19-14 win over Wake Forest on Saturday.
The Terrapins (3-2, 1-0) snapped a two-game skid and surpassed their victory total from 2011, when they went 2-10 in coach Randy Edsall's first season. Maryland also matched its ACC win total of last season.
Wake Forest (3-3, 1-3) led 14-13 when the Terrapins gained possession at their own 41 in the fourth. After a first-down sack, true freshman Perry Hills connected with Diggs on the right flat, and the fleet-footed wide receiver cut down the sideline behind several good blocks before being tackled at the 3. On third down, Pickett carried it into the end zone.
Diggs finished with five catches for 105 yards.
