It is an 87-degree afternoon here at Byrd Stadium. Maryland back Da’Rel Scott had a nice 40-yard run, but the Terps missed two field goals and there is not much to cheer at this point. I even heard a smattering of boos from the crowd.
Here is some first-quarter play by play:
On the first drive, Maryland quarterback Jordan Steffy completed a quick out to Darrius Heyward-Bey, who squirted down the field for a 24-yard game. But on third and five from the 31, Steffy floated a pass to Ronnie Tyler that was nearly intercepted. Maryland kicker Obi Egekeze then missed a 48-yard field goal, as the ball grazed the crossbar.
For Delaware, on third and eight from the 33, quarterback Rob Schoenhoft threw high, but Maryland free safety Terrell Skinner was assessed a pass interference penalty. Delaware had new life but eventually went three and out, punted and pinned Maryland deep in its own territory, at the 2.
Behind the running of Da’Rel Scott, Maryland took the ball down the field on a lengthy played keyed by a 40-yard run by Scott. But the drive stalled at the Delaware 27, and Egekeze missed a 44-yard field goal wide left.
Delaware was on an 8-play drive as the first quarter ended.
There was one late change: Chase Bullock did start for Dave Philistin
