Halftime -- Maryland 17, Clemson 13

After a dismal start, Maryland might have just played its best quarter of football of the entire season. Chris Turner looked sharp. The defense held steady. Heck, the Terps even managed to pick up a turnover.

The scoring all came via the air. Nick Ferrara kicked a 43-yard field goal. Then Turner fired a 29-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith. And finally, Turner ran a bootleg to his right and found Ronnie Tyler in the end zone for a four-yard touchdown pass with 35 seconds remaining in the half.

For Clemson, Richard Jackson kicked a 51-yard field goal, but the Tigers offense was not nearly as efficient in the second quarter as it was in the first.

To top things off for the Terps, Jamari McCollough pulled down an interception in the end zone with four seconds remaining in the half. It was Maryland's fourth forced turnover of the season.

What do you all think? Will Maryland hold on for the win? What will be the keys for the Terps in the second half?

Key for Terps 2nd Half = Barno's mid-night wake up of Clemson players. It'll have a devistating effect!

Hah! I don't seriously think it had any effect, but it was still pretty funny and I enjoyed doing it.
