The Maryland Terrapins (2-1, 0-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) lost their first game of the season Saturday afternoon to the Connecticut Huskies (2-1, 0-0 Big East) 24-21.
From what I saw, the defense is stout, but looked tired toward the end of the game. However, the offense must improve if Maryland is going to be better than their 2-10 record of a season ago.
The Terps can’t turn the ball over at the rate they have been and did Saturday afternoon. Freshman quarterback Perry Hills threw one interception and fumbled once, while the defense was only able to collect a single turnover off of the Huskies.
Stefon Diggs, the highly-touted freshman receiver, and running back Wes Brown were good for the Terps. Each scored a touchdown on the offensive side of the ball.
Diggs also returned several kicks to give Maryland good field position all game long.
The Terps have a difficult opponent next week when they face the West Virginia Mountaineers.
