Terps lose a tough one 24-17!!! College Park, Maryland--- A very disappointing game for the Terps as they lose a tough one to the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest this afternoon 24-17. Both teams went back and forth in a first half but a late interception turned into 3 points at the buzzer for the Demon Deacons as Rick Schultz threw his second interception of the half and the momentum switched over to the Demon Deacons to end the half and go in the locker room up 24-14. Maryland had chances to take the game over in the second half but couldn't chase in as more turnovers cropped up for the Terps 5 total for the game (4 int by two quarterbacks and a fumble). Also a questionable call by Coach Moss in the 4th quarter driving down 24-14 they went for it on 4th and 2 from the Wake Forest 25 and couldn't gain the necessary yards to move the chains. They got the ball back to kick a field goal to make it 24-17 and a chance late in the game but came up short by 1 yard on 4th and 8 to keep the drive going. We talked to Coach Moss after this game. "We'll to say we are disappointed in an understatement. We had a week off and a solid week of practice but didn't execute the game plan. We didn't give there offense in the second half as we held them to no points in the second half but our offense sputtered in the second half. I knew are defense was playing well and wanted to score a touchdown to make it a three point game but we didn't block well on the 4th down play and they stuffed us. This is what makes bad teams better and good teams great. We have had chances to win three of four games but didn't execute. We had chances against South Florida, West Virginia and today against Wake Forest. We will get better and we are improving but just need to be more consistent." The Terps next face Virginia on the road in a must win ACC game for the Terps so early in the season. Recruiting news--- The Terps and Coach Moss are pleased to announce the signing of Kyle Rust TE from Broadview Heights, Ohio. This 3 star with a ranking of 69 OVR is a solid blocking TE who can catch the ball and create holes for the running game. Kyle also had offers from Toledo and Michigan State.
