Maryland has just gone to halftime of its final game of the year, and the sun has pretty much entirely set.
On the day.
On the season.
And maybe on the Ralph Friedgen era.
Maryland is only down 16-10 to Boston College, having forced the Eagles into field goals on their three red zone trips. But BC still has had the better of play, nearly doubling up Maryland in yardage (246-127), and will get the ball to start the second half.
Not that they weren’t already, but the Terps are decidedly staring at the first 10-loss season in school history. Unless the offense can summon some consistency —- and anyone can drag down Montel Harris (93 yards) somewhere in the vicinity of the line of scrimmage —- then the Terps will carry a seven-game losing streak into the offseason.
