Maryland's run defense stands alone in ACC games

Some interesting numbers about this Maryland team:

BY THE NUMBERS...

1.9... The opposition is averaging just 1.9 yards per carry vs. Maryland in its four ACC games, the best mark in the league.

3... Danny O’Brien’s 13 TD passes rank tied for second in the FBS among freshmen QBs.

5... Despite losing two starting offensive tackles to season-ending injuries (Justin Gilbert – knee; Pete DeSouza – fractured legs), the Terps have allowed just five sacks in their four ACC games. Only Clemson (4) has surrendered fewer.

7... Number of points the opposition has scored off seven Maryland turnovers this season. In contrast, the Terps have scored 66 points off 17 opponent turnovers.

7... The Terps have turned the ball over just seven times this season (five interceptions/two fumbles). Only three teams in the FBS (Oregon State – 4; Iowa – 5; Wisconsin – 6) have turned it over fewer times.

16... Number of players who have scored a TD this season, the most since the 2002 season (17).

Finally just reporting the facts. A welcome change.

I realize typos happen, but...

"3... Danny O’Brien’s 13 TD passes rank tied for second in the FBS among freshmen QBs."

Is it 3 - tied for third, or 2 - tied for second?

abaek5: given context, I'd say that "3" is a typo; it should be "13" for the number of TD passes.
