In an ugly season, Maryland football may be looking at a new low point. The Terps trail Boston College 14-3 through the first quarter in front of a sparsely populated Byrd Stadium crowd.
Nasty weather in College Park stopped many fans from coming, but the Terp defense does not have the same excuse. The Boston College offense has pounded the Terps on the ground, rushing for almost 100 yards in the quarter. BC running backs Rolandan Finch and Alex Amidon both have touchdowns on the ground, and quarterback Chase Rettig is perfect through the air for three completions, picking up key third down conversions.
Things are not going as well for the Maryland offense. The first Terp drive looked promising, though it stalled out once in BC territory, resulting in just three points. Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown has completed two passes out of six with an interception.
Unless the Maryland defense can slow the Boston College run game, this could be a long day for the Terps.
