Terps Go From “Season Over” to First Place in 3 1/2 Hours

With about four minutes to go in College Park Saturday Clemson kicker Richard Jackson drilled a 48-yard field goal to tie the game. Only he didn’t. Just before the snap Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen had called timeout. After the break Jackson missed wide right.

The Terps fumbled the ball on the next play and with 2:43 left on the clock Jackson had a shot at redemption. Another 48-yard attempt, another one wide right.

Bullets dodged.

It was a rare afternoon this fall. The breaks went Maryland’s way and they held on for a 24-21 win over Clemson.

Maryland’s defense played their best game of the year not giving up any points in the second half and not allowing Clemson to reach the end zone after the first quarter. The Tigers only second-half points came on a C.J. Spiller kick-return touchdown. The Terps limited Spiller to only 79 yards from scrimmage on the day.

Torrey Smith had three catches for 64 yards and a touchdown and added 100 yards on four kick returns.

The bad news for Maryland, Da’Rel Scott had three carries for zero yards and was carted off the field with his left wrist in an air-cast.

With the win Maryland is now in first place in the ACC Atlantic division. The Terps travel to Winston-Salem to take on Wake Forest next Saturday at 6:30 pm.
