The Maryland Terrapins are off to a good start in their quest to become bowl-eligible. After forcing a three and out on Wake Forest's first drive, the Terps used some special teams excellence to get on the board.
LaQuan Williams blocked Wake Forest's punt, allowing Maryland to pick the ball up on the Wake Forest 32-yard line. However, the Terps were forced to settle for a short Travis Baltz field goal after failing to convert on a third and goal from the five-yard line. Maryland converted two third down plays, but were unable to convert a third, as quarterback Danny O'Brien missed a wide open Torrey Smith on the final play of the drive.
Da'Rel Scott had a couple nice runs on the drive, which allowed him to become the 10th player in team history to eclipse 2,000 career rushing yards. He also caught a third-down screen pass for the first first down of the drive.
