While Maryland’s defensive players would say they could have done more in Saturday’s 24-21 loss, the Terrapins still only surrendered 223 yards to Connecticut.

That’s usually enough to win.

Against the Huskies, it was not.

Since 2001, Maryland has lost only six times when it has yielded less than 250 yards.  Only three times did the Terps give up less than 223 yards and still stumble.

And that leads to Saturday’s postgame chart:
