2010 Military Bowl, Maryland Vs. East Carolina: Da'Rel Scott Inserts The Dagger As Terps Extend Lead To 37-13

Well, Ralph Freidgen may be able to rest easy going into the 4th quarter. The Terps extended their lead to 37-13 on a 61 yard touchdown run by Da'Rel Scott.

It was the only play of the drive.

Scott ran through a huge hole up the middle and saw nothing but daylight the rest of the way. Most observers understood that ECU's defense had trouble stopping other teams, but it's really showing now. Ball carriers are having open lanes to run through, making would be tacklers miss, and at this point, embarrassing the Pirate defense.

With the game seemingly in hand, it will be interesting to see how emotional Friedgen will get in the waning moments of this game. His team is ahead comfortably, and with this being his final game, there has to be plenty of emotions going through his head. If anyone doubted his coaching ability, today was your answer. Clearly his players have come out and responded to their coach's departure by making sure he leaves a winner.
