Maryland Devours Morgan State 62-3

Terrapins fans didn't expect much a contest in this game, and it turns out they were more right than they could have imagined.

According to SB Nation's Maryland blog Testudo Times, the University took control early and never looked back.

On the strength of five first half touchdown passes and a defense that gave up just 75 yards, Maryland demolished in-state FCS opponent Morgan State, 62-3. The 62 points is the most in the Ralph Friedgen era and is the most for the team since the Ford administration. The Terps rise to 2-0 on the year, equaling their win total of last year.

The game wasn't withought its concerns though for Maryland, as the team lost two quarterbacks to injury. Freshman C.J. Brown broke his collarbone on his first play of the game and will reportedly be out eight weeks, according to Patrick Stephens of D1scourse.com. Later in the game, after taking over for mistake-prone Jamarr Robinson, Danny O'Brien took over. O'Brien would later would later suffer a sprained ankle, and the timetable for his return has not yet been determined,according to the Washington Post.
