Running through a mixed bag of pregame predictions:
1. Wes Brown will have his second straight 100-yard game.
INCORRECT. Brown had 20 carries for 73 yards, drawing only seven attempts in the second half as Maryland relied on the pass to get itself back into the game.
2. Caleb Rowe will throw for a touchdown in his first start.
CORRECT. Two, in fact. There was a 1-yard fade to Nigel King and a 66-yard toss to Stefon Diggs. Overall, Rowe was 23 of 42 for 240 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions.
3. Maryland will allow a 100-yard receiver for the fourth time in five games.
CORRECT. It took until the last drive, but Alex Amidon cracked the 100-yard plateau. Amidon had nine receptions for 137 yards, including four catches for 49 yards on the go-ahead possession.
4. Stefon Diggs will crack the top 15 of Maryland’s single-season all-purpose yardage list.
CORRECT. Diggs had 192 all-purpose yards, moving past more than a dozen players on Maryland’s single-season list. He finds himself in 11th place all-time with 1,354 yards this year; he’ll rank seventh with just an average day (for him) of 169 yards next week against Georgia Tech.
5. Maryland will win.
INCORRECT. The Terps had their chances, for certain. A missed field goal, three turnovers and defensive breakdowns on Boston College’s late fourth-quarter possession combined to send Maryland back to .500. Maryland has now alternated two-game winning and losing streaks in both of the season’s first two months.
BOSTON COLLEGE: 3-for-5
