Kicker Baltz making impact for Maryland

Some leftover notes from an impressive victory over a not-so-impressive opponent Saturday:

Travis Baltz made two 47-yard field goals. It marked the first time a Maryland player made two field goals 45 yards or longer since Oct. 11, 2003, when Nick Novak made field goal attempts of 54 and 48 yards. It's no wonder that Coach Ralph Friedgen said Baltz will be the starter for now even if Nick Ferrara (groin injury) returns soon.

Running back D.J. Adams had all 66 of Maryland’s yards during a fourth-quarter scoring drive. He led all Maryland rushers with 70 yards on 11 carries.

The 62 points were the most by a Maryland team since Nov. 22, 1975, when the Terrapins beat Virginia 62-24.

Tony Logan had 128 yards on four punt returns. He is averaging 37 yards per return this season.

QB Danny O’Brien threw touchdown passes on three of his five completions.

Travis should is showing that the injury he had last year really affected him throughout the season. He has been solid this year, and picking up the PK duties has been a great plus.
