Question of the Day
Avoiding a late-game scare wouldn’t hurt, either. With injuries surfacing in the secondary and the Golden Bears forced to throw, Cal quarterback Kevin Riley tossed three touchdowns in a five-minute span to pull the Bears within a possession.
But tucked into Riley’s wild fourth quarter - 239 of his 423 yards came in the final 15 minutes - were three onside kicks recovered by Maryland. One quickly led to Meggett’s insurance score. Another resulted in three kneel-downs by Turner, a prayer for the arrival of the impending celebration likely offered with each.
“We know what we’re capable of doing,” defensive tackle Jeremy Navarre said. “This is the exact same team from last year that beat these teams. We’re all back. When you start off like we did, 1-1 … I don’t care how much people read, they’re not going to believe this team is going to get it done against someone like Cal.”
But the Terps did, again confounding conventional wisdom while re-infusing hope into a season a week after a deflating setback - and revealing a path that could still lead to a productive year.
“We really need to grow from this game,” Friedgen said. “It kind of showed what our kids are made of.”
Notes - Kicker Obi Egekeze missed a 27-yard field goal and fell to 0-for-5 for the season. “I’ll probably make a change there or at least put it into competition, if nothing else,” Friedgen said. …
Cornerback Richard Taylor suffered a knee or hamstring injury and is expected to undergo an MRI exam Sunday.
