2010 Military Bowl, Maryland Vs. East Carolina: Terps Extend Their Lead To 30-10 With D.J. Adam's 3rd TD Run

And just when the Terps needed to respond, they do just that. Running back D.J. Adams scored on his 3rd rushing touchdown of the afternoon, giving the Terps a 30-10 lead.

The Terps offense answered the ECU scoring drive with an 11 play, 69 yard touchdown drive, giving them a 20 point 3rd quarter lead. The offense used a good mix of run and pass, where ECU saw another dose of Da'Rel Scott, Davin Meggett and Adams. Danny O'Brien was able to hit on crucial third downs on the drive, most notably a 31 yard screen pass to Meggett that took the ball inside the ECU 25 yard line. From there, the Terps made it look easy. They methodically moved the ball inside the 10 yard line, which set up the Terps to pound it in once again. Adams took another hand off 1 yard and after crossing the goal line, and gave Ralph Friedgen another big lead late into the 3rd quarter.

ECU's defense came into this game having one of the worst defense's in the country, and it's really starting to rear it's ugly head as the Maryland offense continues to exploit the holes given to them. Should they be able to do this the rest of the half, it may not matter how explosive ECU's offense is.
