Terps Post-game Notes

Here are some post-game notes:

Josh Portis ran for 98 yards, the highest total for a Maryland quarterback since Shaun Hill ran for 105 yards on five carries against Duke on Oct. 20, 2001.

By recording 31 receiving yards Saturday, Darrius Heyward-Bey passed Barry Johnson (1987-90) and Greg Hill (1982-84) to move into fifth-place all time in school history with 1,730 career receiving yards. He stands just 18 receiving yards behind Marcus Badgett (1989-92) for fourth all time.

Adrian Moten recorded Maryland’s first blocked punt since Josh Wilson blocked one against William & Mary on Sept. 2, 2006.

Maryland’s 51 points were the most the Terrapins have scored since a 55-point outburst in a 55-21 victory over Duke on Sept. 25, 2004.

Linebacker Dave Philistin collected 10 tackles and one-half sack Saturday. He now has tallied at least nine tackles in 11 of his last 13 games.

Running back Davin Meggett became the first Maryland true freshman tailback to start a game since LaMont Jordan started against Georgia Tech on Nov. 22, 1997.

True freshman Cameron Chism made his Maryland debut when he participated on the coverage team on the opening kickoff. Chism is the fourth true freshman to see action this season, joining Meggett, Kenny Tate and Matt Furstenburg.

I'm glad to see Portis getting playing time. He brings a dimension to the game that no other quarterback on the roster can bring.

I think we'll bigger and better things from Mr Portis in the future.

Can we get an injury update on Meggett? I heard he pulled a hamstring or something?
