CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Wali Lundy ran for two touchdowns, giving him 14 this season, and No. 12 Virginia remained in a first-place tie in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a 16-0 win over Maryland on Saturday.

In a game that has grown into a bitter rivalry, neither team looked especially sharp at the beginning. But the Cavaliers (7-1, 4-1 ACC) wore down the Terrapins (4-5, 2-4) on the ground, running for 295 yards. Alvin Pearman led the way with 170 yards on 31 carries, and Lundy added 107 yards on 24 attempts.

Virginia's defense also played a huge role, not allowing quarterback Joel Statham to follow up his 333-yard performance in a 20-17 victory against Florida State last week, or Josh Allen to come anywhere near the career-best 257 yards he ran for against Virginia last year.

Statham was 10-of-17 for just 115 yards before being replaced by Jordan Steffy in the fourth quarter. Statham was intercepted twice by linebacker Ahmad Brooks. Allen ran for 39 yards on 10 tries.

A Scott Stadium record crowd of 63,072 turned out on a crisp fall day and saw a scoreless first quarter. Behind Pearman, the Cavaliers finally got something going.

Pearman ran nine times for 49 yards and caught a dump pass for 13 yards as Virginia drove 86 yards for the game's first points. Lundy capped the drive with a 4-yard run, his 13th touchdown on the ground this year.

After Maryland gained only 6 yards in three plays and punted, Lundy took over at tailback and ran for 47 of the Cavaliers' 59 yards in a 10-play scoring drive. On a 15-yard TD run, Lundy started left, found his path filled with Terrapins, then cut back right and scored easily.
