The story of the first quarter is not Da’Rel Scott, though he’s been quite good.

No, the big development is that Maryland’s defense has yielded 45 yards in four possessions (over 16 plays) so far.


It’s a dramatic difference for an outfit that’s been steamrolled the first two weeks of the season.

The Terps just held Middle Tennessee to nine yards on three plays after a Chris Turner interception. The Blue Raiders could yet go for it to start the second quarter, but the first 15 minutes reflected well on Don Brown‘s unit.
