    There may be a new battle at the runningback position for the Terrapins. After previously announced starter Gary Douglas went out for the game early on, backup Caleb Porzel came in and played a heck of a game. Porzel finished with 22 Carries for 127 Yards 1 TD, and an 86 yard kick return for a TD. Porzel has been used in limited situations in the last couple of years as a 3rd down back, but never really showed much promise. Last night, he showed the skills that were expected of him when he was recruited out of high school. This was the first game of the season for the Terrapins, and they showed some rust in the first quarter, but came out firing in the 2nd. They would go on tot put up 24 points in a huge 2nd quarter that would ultimately decide the game. The defense also played a great game, bending many times but rarely breaking. They came up with 6 turnovers (5 interceptions and 1 fumble recovery), which many times set up the Maryland offense with good field position. Next week the Terrapins go to Clemson, a team that always gives them trouble.

    The Clemson Tigers have had the Terrapins number over the last 3 years, winning 2 of 3 games and derailing the Terps ACC title hopes once again. The Tiger offense looked unstoppable, throwing for 350 yards and rushing for 125, while the Terrapins offense struggled to get anything going, gaining a total of 252 yards. Even with the large difference in yardage totals, Maryland was able to keep the game close, keeping the game tied until 1:31 left in the 4th. The defense was able to make enough plays to give the offense a short field on a couple off drives, that they were able to capitalize on. But, the defense could only do so much, and gave up a couple of big plays that would turn out to be the difference in the game.

    The Wake Forest Demon Deacons were without their head coach for the game against the Maryland Terrapins, and it showed. After ending the first quarter 7-7, the Terrapins were dominant, scoring 31 unanswered points. The 3rd quarter was when the Terps really broke the game open, scoring 17 points, including a fumble recovery for a td and a 36 yard TD reception by Kerry Boykins. The reserves came in for the 4th quarter, and Maryland was able to add an early field goal before running the clock out with their next couple of possessions.

    Big plays were the story of this game against Virginia. Maryland scored on a 59 yard pass, an 80 yard interception return, an 83 yard kick return, and a 32 yard interception return to go along with 3 Nick Ferrara field goals and a 4 yard rushing score by Caleb Porzel. The defense played extremely well forcing 5 interceptions and giving the struggling offense good field position all game. The Terrapin offense was held to 15 first downs and less than 250 yards of offense and only scored 1 touchdown. Defense and special teams accounted for 40 of the 47 points.

    Maryland's defense once again played lights out, shutting down Navy's triple option attack and holding them to 173 yards of offense and forcing 4 interceptions. DB Kevin Brown accounted for 3 of those interceptions and safety Eric Franklin had the other. The passing game struggled again, with a very unreliable group of receivers. This year's receiving corps seems to have more drops than the last 2 groups of receivers combined. The running game picked up the slack this week though, with Caleb Porzel rushing for 101 yards on 6 carries and Gary Douglas running for 94 on 17. Freshman HB Andy Randle got in for a little bit in garbage time, and looks promising for the future.

    Maryland walked into South Bend ready for a dogfight against top 25 Notre Dame. The running game had a lot of success, with Gary Douglas running for 115 yards with 2 TDs and Caleb Porzel going for 83 yards. Quarterback Danny O'Brien continued to struggle with his accuracy, completing only 50% of his passes. The defense stepped up and played big, forcing 4 turnovers from the Irish offense, including an interception that was returned for a touchdown by Jeremiah Johnson.

    The Terrapins defense has been a strength all season, but let them down in this game against Florida State. Seminole HB Chris Thompson ran 25 times for 197 Yards and 4 TDs. The Terrapins were forced to throw the ball after being down for most of the game, and Danny O'Brien really struggled, throwing 5 interceptions and completing less than 50% of his passes.
