“That’s going to be a competition in terms of who is going to be the punter, who is going to be the kickoff guy and who is going to be the field goal guy,” Edsall said. “That will all continue as we get back here in August and we’ll see where we are.”

The offense picked up a point for every first down, of which there were 26. The defense, meanwhile, tacked on 26 points for its 13 sacks.

With the quarterbacks wearing noncontact jerseys, it became measurably easier to collect sacks. The defense was credited with six in the final quarter alone.

“They had a quick whistle today with some, and some we can understand,” quarterback C.J. Brown said. “There’s nothing we can do about that. I can’t control [that]. They’ve done that every scrimmage. It’s just part of the thing. It’s unfortunate that every single sack, they got points for that.”

5. Captains of the ship. Maryland named its four captains before the scrimmage: Quarterback C.J. Brown, wide receiver Kevin Dorsey, linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield and defensive end Joe Vellano.

Vellano will be a captain for the second straight season. Brown, a redshirt junior, is the lone non-senior in the group. Hartsfield owns 29 career starts, the most of the group (Vellano has 25, Dorsey 11 and Brown five).
