At Half, 24-14 Terps

The story of the first half: The Terps are making opportunistic plays on defense (two interceptions) and on special teams (one blocked punt), but the pass defense is getting carved up again. EMU QB has completed 16 of 22 passes for 217 yards in the first half. Remember, Cal QB Kevin Riley threw for 239 in the fourth quarter alone.

So in the past three quarters combined, opponents have thrown for 456 yards! And check this out: McMahon is the EMU backup who had thrown for 296 yards all season!

Morgan Green has two touchdown runs, playing in place of Da'Rel Scott, who has a shoulder injury. And kicker Obi Egekeze made his first field goal of the season, a 23-yarder.

Without the interceptions and punt block, this game is probably tied.

Be more negative.

"Remember, Cal QB Kevin Riley threw for 239 in the fourth quarter alone. "

-No mention that it was in the prevent defense at all. I know the defense is struggling today, but the way you write is just so 'glass half empty'. They are winning.

You can make the point without being so dramatic. "the game would be tied". Well, it's not. They made some big plays.
