Terps Annihilate Morgan State

By Ben Linton

On a weekend where many ACC teams lost (Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech, Florida State, Miami) the Maryland Terrapins took care of business and put themselves in position to be recognized in the ACC by demolishing Morgan State 62-3. The Terps improve to 2-0 on the season, matching the win total of last year, and record their first winning streak since 2008.

It was a total domination from start to finish, as Maryland scored on their first three drives and scored 45 points in the first half. Jamarr Robinson started for the Terps and went 6 for 14 for 70 yards and 2 touchdown passes, and ran for 36 yards as well. He was replaced by Danny O’Brien in the second quarter, who threw for 79 yards and 3 touchdowns to continue the rout.

Going into the game, Maryland needed to establish some sort of passing game before the big match up at West Virginia next weekend. Robinson played solid, but O’Brien showed a lot of promise and is probably the better passer of the two. This may have stirred up a QB controversy, and Maryland may implement a two quarterback system next week (which I am not in favor of.) Regardless of who starts next weekend, they better be prepared for a tough West Virginia team that Maryland has not defeated since 2003.

If Maryland can go into Morgantown and come out on top, they immediately will become a favorite in the ACC. In a league that has disappointed this far into the college football season, Maryland has a perfect opportunity to sneak into the conference race. A lot will be discovered about this Maryland team next weekend against their rivals from the Big East. Kickoff is at 12:00 pm and will be broadcasted on ESPNU

    This really essentially a lovely stuff. An doc something like this provides precisely how deep the concept is actually realized by publisher.
