Terps Score, Take 31-14 Lead

Morgan Green has two touchdown runs, but the most impressive runs have been from Darrius Heyward-Bey, who topped his 35-yard first-half scamper with a 46-yard run to start the second half. That helped set up Chris Turner's four-yard touchdown pass to tight end Dan Gronkowski.

Maryland's offense has been effective. Let's see if the pass defense can improve. And I don't think I'm being negative when the defense is getting torched by a backup Qb on a bad team from a mid-major league.

Maryland's D is making Kyle McMahon look like Joe Craddock.

You are only negative when it comes to comparing it to last week's 4th quarter. They were letting Cal gain yards in the middle of the field. Yes, they allowed too many yards on their last 2 scores, but it's tough to compare today with a defense in prevent-mode from last week.

That's a fair point about the prevent. About today, though, I really did not anticipate McMahon playing this well. But, overall, it's 34-17, Maryland is threatening again, and this game is progressing like most people figured it would. Turner is playing pretty well now. Heyward-Bey has been tough to catch. And this is all without Scott.
