Boston College beats Terps on last-second field goal

An ill-timed timeout by Maryland coach Randy Edsall at the end of regulation. As Boston College (7-4, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) was lining up for a 52-yard field goal, Edsall called a timeout as the ball sailed wide left. The Terps (6-5, 2-5) ended their ACC home schedule with a 29-26 loss.

Maryland’s offense struggled for much of the day, as has been the case since Stefon Diggs and Deon Long got hurt in the Wake Forest game. However, they were able to muster 24 points. Maryland’s other two points came on a blocked extra point.

Maryland upsets Virginia Tech in overtime

The Maryland Terrapins (6-4, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) needed a few weeks, but finally earned bowl-eligibility Saturday afternoon with a 27-24 overtime victory over the Virginia Tech Hokies (7-4, 4-3).

Maryland has struggled and has been dealing with a bevy of injuries since their shutout over West Virginia in Week 4. Their defense flew around the field all day and limited the Hokies to 264 yards of offense.

No. 9 Clemson blows Maryland out

Caleb Rowe threw three touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough for the Maryland Terrapins (5-3, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) in the 40-27 loss to the No. 9 Clemson Tigers (7-1, 5-1) Saturday afternoon.

Tajh Boyd and the Tigers’ offense found a good tempo in the second half and was too much for a banged up Maryland squad to handle.

Maryland bounces back, beats Virginia in tight game

Maryland (5-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), started slow, but eventually won a back and forth game with the border rival Virginia Cavaliers (2-4, 0-2) 27-26.

The biggest play of the day came in the fourth quarter. On a long third down pass, sophomore quarterback Caleb Rowe found receiver Deon Long for a huge gain to get the Terps in the red zone, trailing 26-20. Rowe then found tight end Dave Stinebaugh for the go-ahead touchdown.

No. 25 Maryland suffers first loss of season, Brown injured

The Seminoles completely dominated this game from start to finish. Jameis Winston threw for five touchdowns, a career high, and 393 yards.

Maryland to the Big Ten will breed success for all

It finally happened. The University of Maryland, a charter member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, has abandoned their affiliation with that conference and joined the Big Ten. This move has been rumored for years and will become official in 2014. The Big Ten will have 14 teams with Rutgers joining as well.

Why is this a good move?

For starters, the Terrapins will finally be able to grow their football program by playing historical schools besides Florida State. If I’m a recruit and I get to play against Penn State, Wisconsin and Ohio State, I’m ecstatic. Also, in recruiting battles of rival schools, Maryland may not lose as many kids to Penn State.

Terps get blown out by Clemson

In another week of a struggling offense, the Maryland Terrapins (4-6, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) dropped their latest game to the Clemson Tigers (9-1, 6-1). The Tigers beat Maryland 45-10 Saturday afternoon.

Playing without Stefon Diggs and with fifth string quarterback Shawn Petty, it was a very similar game to last week’s loss. Maryland just can’t throw the ball very well with Petty.

The defense has degraded over the season because the offense can’t stay on the field. Maryland’s turnovers have continued and Clemson took advantage Saturday.

Maryland plays its final home game next Saturday against Florida State.

Terps drop third straight game 33-13

The Terps (4-5, 2-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) are on their fifth quarterback and they just suffered their fifth loss of the season.

It’s hard to judge the Terps’ 33-13 loss to Georgia Tech because of the quarterback situation. However, it wasn’t pretty and they still turn the ball over an awful lot.

Let’s see how it goes next week.
