After two of his three receptions Saturday against West Virginia resulted in touchdowns, Maryland’s Stefon Diggs has been named the ACC rookie of the week.
Diggs, a Good Counsel product, finished with 113 receiving yards and touchdown receptions of 42 and 56 yards. Each included substantial yards after the catch, and the former finished with a four-yard dive at full extention past the near pylon.
The true freshman also had 88 return yards, his second straight game tallying at least 200 all-purpose yards.
“It’s the same we said last week and the week before,” Coach Randy Edsall said after Maryland’s 31-21 loss Saturday. “He’s a dynamic player. He’s a guy that makes things happen. He’s a game-changer. I guess we’ve got to find more ways to get him the ball more.”
The Terps enter their bye week at 2-2. The ACC announced that Maryland’s first conference opener against Wake Forest, on Oct. 6 at Byrd Stadium, will kick off at 3:30 p.m., broadcast on ESPNU.
