    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.

    Missouri rides the Henry Josey train to victory

    #23 Missouri: 48
    Vanderbilt: 20

    Missouri dominated Vandy on the heels of Running Back Josey and Safety Walker. Running Back Josey broke the Missouri single game rushing record and the SEC single game rushing record with a total of 367 rushing yards. The Mizzou offensive line really stepped up and Josey responded. Strong Safety Walker managed to get 2 INTS, 1 TD, 1 sack, and 6 tackles to make sure Vandy could not respond to the Mizzou offense.

    Player of the game:

    HB Henry Josey: 20 carriers, 367 yards, 2 TDS

    *It shows 3 restarts but in reality was only 2. The first one the game got dropped and the second one was the game froze at the end. Hopefully this was an isolated incident as I've only had one other problem the entire season.

    Aggies Power Past Ole Miss With Ground Attack
    A&M escaped back to Texas this week with a win thanks to the running game. Christine Michael stunned the crowd putting up 5 touchdowns and 196 yards on 21 carries averaging 9.3 yrds per carry. The defense forced several turnovers with 2 INTS and 2 fumbles but still gave up more than ideal yardage. The Ags kept the Rebels idle on the ground, only allowing 75 yards on the ground. However, they allowed 400 yards passing, it appeared to be due to a lack of rushing the QB. The offense was steady throughout the game and were able to pass if needed but with 3 INTs and a lost fumble. The Aggies still host LSU at home for what should be an exciting battle.

    The Tar Heels turned the ACC up on it's head this week, as they pulled the upset over the #9 Virginia Tech Hokies, 17-10. In a game that really wasn't as close as the final score would indicate, North Carolina took advantage of timely turnovers and big plays on offense, to take full control over the Coastal Division of the ACC.

    Though he had to battle through the most turnovers he's had this season, QB Bryn Renner persevered enough to throw for both of the Heels' touchdowns. First, on a textbook screen pass on 3rd & Short to All-ACC RB Gio Bernard, who took the short pass 65 more yards to the end zone to open up the scoring in the game. Following an interception of a Logan Thomas pass in the end zone by Jr. CB Terry Shankle, Renner connected with WR T.J. Thorpe on an 82 yard bomb for what would be the deciding touchdown, with seconds to go in the first half. Renner finished 10/19 for 253 yards and 2 touchdowns, with 3 interceptions.

    North Carolina's defensive dominance continued on, even against Thomas and a high-powered Hokies offense. The Jr QB was held to a pedestrian 123 yards passing, and 2 interceptions. Virginia Tech found just as little success on the ground as well, as the Tar Heels held their fifth consecutive opponent to under 100 yards rushing, allowing the Tech offense a mere 86 yards total rushing. The Hokies were able to pull within four following a couple of Renner interceptions to set up scoring drives by Va. Tech, but the defense clamped down to hold off the late surge, and a Thomas Moore field goal with less than a minute to play, sealed the upset for the Tar Heels.

    UNC looks to be ranked in the polls for the first time this year, following the upset, and remains in control of their own destiny in the ACC Coastal. Carolina will travel down to Coral Gables this week, to continue the meat and potatoes of their ACC season against "The U" of Miami.
