Unbeaten after three games for the first time since 2001, Maryland can match its win total of last season with a victory over the Mountaineers on Saturday in Baltimore.
C.J. Brown ran for 122 yards and a touchdown and threw for 277 yards and another score on Saturday night as Maryland beat UConn 32-21, giving coach Randy Edsall his first victory over the program he coached for a dozen seasons.
When the Terrapins hit the field at Byrd Stadium on Saturday, they will do so with sixth-year senior C.J. Brown back under center. It is a welcome turn of events for a team that foundered to a 4-8 record, thanks in no small part to ACL injuries that felled Brown and his backups, Perry Hillis, Devin Burns and Caleb Rowe.
Dexter McDougle's unexpected odyssey around Memorial Stadium took him from the goal line to one sideline and then the other, a Clemson missed field goal the impetus for the junior cornerback's way-too-long run.
Jeremiah Johnson was not sure exactly when he would arrive at Maryland.
Maryland's football season was going to come to a close Saturday regardless of outcome. Somehow, the end was even more unbearable than the Terrapins ever would have guessed.
With Maryland at the midpoint of its season, at least one reasonable conclusion can be drawn: The Terrapins are struggling on special teams.
Dexter McDougle didn't think it was a big deal. Not at first, anyway.
"Gassed isn't even the word to describe it," McDougle said.
"Coaches have been telling us since spring that special teams is just as important as offense and defense," cornerback Dexter McDougle said. "You have to have 11 guys who just light their hair on fire and get down there and want to hit somebody. Guys are buying into it, but we've just had a couple mistakes that have led to big plays that we're going to get fixed up."
