Boston College Vs. Maryland Final Score: Terps' Season Hits New Low With 28-17 Loss

The Maryland Terrapins appear to have settled the debate over which team is the worst in the ACC. Maryland fell at home to lowly Boston College, 28-17, and the game wasn't really that close. With the loss, the Terps fall to 2-6 and 1-4 in the conference, which is tied for last place. The level of play in recent losses suggests the Terps are even worse than the record indicates.

Boston College outgained the Terps by more than 140 yards. The Boston College running game dominated, with running back Rolandan Finch leading the way with astronomical numbers. Finch ran 39 times for 237 yards and two touchdowns. 

The Terps' offense could do little right. Maryland receivers must work on the ability to catch the ball, as drops haunted both Terps quarterbacks that played in the game. C.J. Brown started for the Terps before being relieved by Danny O'Brien in the second quarter. Neither quarterback stood out. Brown moved the ball with some efficiency but again looked erratic passing the ball. O'Brien completed less than half of his passes with a touchdown and an interception.

The remainder of the season for Maryland will probably answer questions for 2012, as it looks like 2011 will not produce postseason play.

Maryland Vs. Boston College Info

Maryland 2-5 (1-3) will be looking to stop a three-game slide that has spoiled a once promising season against the Boston College Eagles 1-6 (0-4), who have suffered through a nightmare of a season to this point, beating only FCS Massachusetts for their lone victory.

Both teams have been bitten hard by the injury bug, but the Eagles have looked good at times in recent weeks against Virginia Tech, Clemson and Wake Forest. The Terrapins have also had their moments, nearly knocking off Georgia Tech, and also fumbling away an 18-point second half lead to Clemson, losing 56-45, before getting destroyed last week by Florida State.

Maryland Injury Report Vs. Boston College

Maryland wide receiver Kevin Dorsey is listed as out in the injury report for the game against Boston College this Saturday. Dorsey is one of three players listed out for the game, along with offensive lineman Justin Gilbert and cornerback Jeremiah Johnson.

The report also includes defensive lineman Justin Anderson who is doubtful, and wide receiver Tony Logan and defensive tackle Andre Monroe who are questionable. Tackle Max Garcia is also listed on the report as probable.

An interesting omission from the injury report is linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield, who has missed the previous two games since injuring himself against Georgia Tech.

The injury bug has been unkind to the Terrapins so far, as currently eight players on the injury report are listed as out for the season, including star linebacker Kenny Tate, who is a new addition to the out for the season category, as he will undergo season-ending surgery on Friday. Maryland Head Coach Randy Edsall has yet to reveal what the nature of Tate's injury is.
