The Washington Times - October 18, 2009, 11:39PM

A few stats of note:

* Maryland has now gone nearly 18 quarters without a rush of at least 16 yards. The Terps have three on the season; last year, they had one in nine of 13 games.

SEE RELATED:


* A season-low on penalty yardage (15) for Maryland, and the defense didn’t have any such miscues during a solid performance.

* Davin Meggett moved into the team lead for total touches on the season. He has 71, Da’Rel Scott 62.

* Yesterday marked the first time all season a pass to Tommy Galt wasn’t caught by somebody. He’s been targeted 14 times and has 12 catches. The other target before yesterday was the interception James Madison returned for a score. Statistically, he’s the most sure-handed guy the Terps have, though he clearly isn’t getting thrown jump balls like Torrey Smith might.

Onto the breakdown:
