The Maryland Terrapins won their third consecutive game, Saturday, as the team became 3-0 for the first time since 2001. The Terps played a phenomenal all-around game to snag an impressive win against a Big East contender. Maryland’s offense got going early and often, as the unit pumped out 501 total yards, surpassing the 500 mark for the third straight game for the third straight game.
Maryland led just 13-10 at half time, but quarterback C.J. Brown led the second half charge throwing a 12 yard touchdown to wide out Stefon Diggs. Diggs had a big game receiving catching five balls for 110 yards. On the ground, Brown and running back Brandon Ross combined for 217 yards, controlling the tempo of the game. The defense, also, played a major roll in the victory returning an interception for a touchdown along with forcing another turnover. The Terrapins showed great poise in head coach Randy Edsall’s return to East Hartford, Connecticut, after spending twelve years with the team.
The team now turns its attention to Saturday, and a match up with the rival West Virginia Mountaineers. Maryland has dropped the last seven matchups between the two teams, and will look to snap the long losing streak. WVU currently sits at 2-1 with their only loss coming to the number sixteen ranked Oklahoma Sooners. The game should prove to be a great contest, and will be featured on ESPNU at 3:30 in College Park, Maryland.
