David Seawright's 25-yard field goal attempt bounced off the left goal post as time expired in the first half, preserving Maryland's 15-point lead.
A quick, and possibly crucial, injury note: With 3:22 left in the half, Kevin Riley threw a quick pass to Jahvid Best in the flat. Best was drilled as soon as he touched the ball by Kevin Barnes and lay prone on the field for several minutes. Best was taken into the locker room but returned to the sidelines with about :30 remaining in the half. No word on the nature of his injury yet.
Best is Cal's most dynamic offensive threat. If he cannot return, or is limited, in the second half, the task of Maryland's defense becomes much easier. Though, to Maryland's credit, Best was held to just four yards on five carries before leaving the game.
Maryland 21, Cal 6
