    The Terrapins hosted Kentucky in their home opener this year, and were able to start the season off on the right foot. The offense looked impressive at times, and although the defense struggled to get stops, they did manage to force a couple of key turnovers. After going back and forth for the majority of the first half the Terrapins kicked a field goal as time expired in the half cut the Wildcat lead to 21-20. Both defenses stepped up in the second half and played much better, as only 17 total points were scored in the second half compared to 41 in the first half. The first points of the half were scored with 3 seconds left in the 3rd quarter on a 19 yard pass from Jamarr Robinson to Ronnie Tyler, his second receiving td of the game. Kentucky would answer back with 12 seconds left on a great play by QB Morgan Newton to scramble and get the ball to his receiver in the back of the endzone. The Wildcats would squib the ensuing kickoff giving the Terps the ball on their own 38 with 8 seconds left. Robinson would find Quentin McCree for a 32 yard gain to put Maryland on the Wilidcat 30 with 1 second left on the clock. Nick Ferrara would hit the clutch field goal as time expired to win the game for the Terrapins.

    The Terrapins came into this game with revenge on their mind from last year's loss to the Tigers that put them out of contention for the Atlantic Division title, and they definitely got it. The first quarter was dominated on defense by both teams. Each quarterback threw an interception, and Terrapin linebacker Ben Pooler recovered a fumble and took it 25 yards for the score. Maryland opened it up offensively in the 2nd quarter, scoring 17 points, and their defense kept the shutout giving them a 24-0 lead at halftime. Feeling good about the lead the Terrapins reigned in the offense a little bit, trying to get the ground game going and were fairly successful at times. Gary Douglas, subbing on for a tired Davin Meggett, scored on a 48 yard td run and Torrey Smith would add a td reception from Jamarr Robinson before the Maryland starters would be pulled with a 38-3 lead. Clemson's field goal came on their first drive of the second half, but wasn't able to spark much else from their offense. The Tigers would add a td on a 2 yard run by Andre Ellington at the end of the 3rd quarter, but that would be all of the scoring they would get for the rest of the game. In the 4th quarter the Terps just pounded the ball, trying to kill the clock. They would add two field goals from Nate Ferrara giving them a 44-10 victory.

    The Terrapins continue their tough early season schedule with a game against #20 Miami. Maryland came into the game 2-0 while Miami was 0-1. The first quarter was a defensive struggle until Maryland was finally able to punch it in on a 1 yard run by fullback Taylor Watson. The second quarter was all Miami though, as they scored 14 points and the Terrapins were unable to stop their offense. With Miami leading 14-7 and all of the momentum coming out of halftime, the Terrapins needed a big play. After tying the game a 14 all, Senior corner Cameron Chism picked off a Jacory Harris pass, and raced 66 yards for the touchdown. This was the big play the Terrapins needed, and they would not look back from this point. After a Marlyand field goal the Hurricanes would strike back on an 81 yard pass, but on the first play of the next drive Jamarr Robinson would find Ronnie Tyler for an 80 yard completion of his own. Davin Meggett would seal the game witht a 35 yard run up the middle, and Maryland would go on to win 38-28.

    This game lived up to its expectations as 2 ACC Atlantic contenders squared off in an early season matchup. The Demon Deacons would come out on fire, getting the home crowd excited after scoring the first 14 points of the game. It looked like Wake would run away with the game early, but the Terps came back and put together a solid drive capped by a 5 yard td run by Davin Meggett with 38 seconds left in the first quarter. The Terrapins would go on to score 24 unanswered points, including a 17-0 second quarter that seemed to turn the game around. Meggett scored on another short run, Nick Ferrara hit a 57 yard field goal, then as time expired Torrey Smith got on the end of a hail mary pass from Jamarr Robinson to give them a 24-14 lead going into the half. Wake would come out and fight back to tie the game up in the 3rd on a short field goal, and a 64 yard pass from Skylar Jones to Chris Givens, who finished the game with an outstanding 6 catches for 283 yards and 2 tds. Maryland would answer with a 50 yard screen pass to Meggett to retake the lead, and then Gary Douglas would punch in another short td to give Maryland a 14 point lead again. Wake would fight back to cut the lead to 38-31, but were unable to recover the onside kick.

    Maybe Maryland was looking forward to next week's big matchup with NC State, or maybe they just didn't come ready to play this week. Regardless of what the problem was, they may have ruined their chances for the ACC title this week after losing to Virginia. The defense struggled to stop a potent Virginia offense, and the offense was nonexistent today. Jamarr Robinson put up a good yardage total, but was only 15-33 to go along with his 278 2 tds and 1 int. The offensive line couldn't deal with the blitz packages Virginia sent at them, giving up 7 sacks. One bright spot was tight end Lansford Watson, who had 5 catches for 87 yards, as he was able to find holes in the defense. Kicker Nick Ferrara also struggled this game, missing both of his field goal attempts, one from within 20 yards and another from about 40 out. All the credit goes to Virginia though, they played a great game and really knew how to exploit the Terrapins offensively and defensively. Maryland looks to recover next week with their trip to NC State in another big conference game.

    After losing their last 2 games, the Terrapins came back strong in Coach Timpegoose's first game back from his 1 game absence. The Terps were able to establish a decent running game early with backup Gary Douglas, after Davin Meggett went down early with an injury. Maryland's defense would be the ones to start off the scoring though on a 47 yard interception return by Dexter McDougle, his first of 2 picks on the game. The Terrapins would control the game behind the running of Douglas and another efficient performance by Jamarr Robinson, who would finish 11/19 163 yards 3 tds and 1 int. Star wideout Torrey Smith was held in check though, only catching 3 balls for 39 yards, but he did add 1 td. The Terrapins look to be back on track heading into their showdown with Florida State next week, and will be looking to challenge for the ACC title with a little bit of luck.

    Maryland came into the game against Florida State finally back on track after their 2 game losing streak, only to go ahead and lose another game. The Terrapins had no answer to the Seminole running game as Chris Thompson ran 24 times for 312 yards and 5 touchdowns. The Terrapins offense played an alright game themselves, with Jamarr Robinson throwing for over 400 yards and 2 TDs, but they couldn't finish in the red zone. Thompson ripped off 3 TD runs of over 20 yards, all on the next possession after a Maryland score.

    After yet another disappointing loss, the Terrapins would once again have to bounce back against a formidable ACC opponent. Georgia Tech came into College Park boasting their triple option offense, and were licking their chops after seeing the Terrapins give up 300+ yards to Florida State last week. The Terrapins defense would show up to play this week though, holding the Yellow Jackets to 2.3 yards per carry on 26 attempts. They also were able to force 4 fumbles, recovering 3 of them, which game the offense a short field to work with on multiple occasions. Jamarr Robinson was efficient, completing 12/18 passes for 211 yards and 3 TDs. Backup running back Gary Douglas came in after the injury to Davin Meggett and carried 9 times for 57 yards, much better than Meggett's 21 yards on 15 carries. Torrey Smith was once again held in check, only catching 3 balls for 49 yards and 1 TD. Next week the Terrapins host Temple before a big conference showdown with Boston College.​

    The Maryland Terrapins came into this game hoping to stay on pace to get a bid in a solid bowl. A loss to Temple could push them out of relevance and a win would give them a chance at a good bowl if they are able to win out. The Terrapins would start off the scoring on their second drive, hitting Torrey Smith on a 5 yard slant to take a 7-0 lead. Temple would bounce back on a 42 yard run by Bernard Pierce, who would carry the Owls offense all day. Pierce would finish with 138 yards and 1 TD on only 19 carries. QB Chester Stewart would struggle for the Owls, going 14/27 for 144 yards and 1 int. The Terrapins offense, on the other hand, was clicking in all phases. Jamarr Robinson threw for 269 yards and 2 tds, but also added 2 ints. Davin Meggett finally got something going on the ground, rushing for 153 yards and 2 TDs on 30 carries. The teams would end up going into the half tied at 17, but the Terrapins would pull away in the 2nd half, scoring 17 unanswered points and shutting out the Temple offense.

    Even though Maryland was out of the ACC Title race they still had the chance to play spoilers against Boston college. The Eagles were ranked #6 in the nation, and the Terrapins were still unranked after hitting a rough patch in the middle of the season. The two teams would battle back and forth for the entire first half, with BC taking a 3 point lead on a field goal as time expired. The Terrapin defense came out fired up in the 2nd half, forcing BC QB David Shinskie into 4 interceptions and leading the Terrapins to a 17-0 3rd quarter. The 4th quarter consisted of Maryland trying to keep the potent BC offense off the field, and Davin Meggett did a good job of controlling the ball on the ground rushing 24 times for 95 yards and 2 TDs. Jamarr Robinson was also efficient going 13/20 for 272 yards and 2 TDs.

    Maryland 27 Vanderbilt 28

    Vanderbilt defended their home turf this Saturday, upsetting #23 Maryland. The Commodores came out on their first drive firing on all cylinders, on an 83 yard touchdown run by Warren Norman. The Terrapins struggled to adjust to the blitzing style of the Commodores, but they would get on the board with a 70 yard screen to stud wideout Torrey Smith. The teams would trade touchdowns and go into the half tied at 14. Maryland would score 10 unanswered points in the 3rd quarter, capped off by a pick 6 by senior corner Cameron Chism, which looked to put the Terrapins in control of the game. Vandy would strike back early in the 4th with a td pass, followed by a Maryland field goal to make the score 27-21 Maryland. Vandy would lead a masterful drive down the field and score with 21 seconds left to take the lead 28-27. Maryland would not be done, driving 40 yards down the field to get just outside of fieldgoal range with 10 seconds left and only 1 timeout. Looking for a quick pass to get into field goal range, Jamarr Robinson dropped back but was sacked forcing the Terrapins to call their last timeout. Torrey Smith would get his hands on a hail mary in the back of the endzone, but was unable to bring it down as time expired.
