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.
