NCAAF Recap: Maryland Terripans: 32 Miami Hurricanes (FL): 24

Offensive player of the Terps: Wide receiver Kevin Dorsey caught 8 receptions for 124 yards, while sophomore quarterback Danny O’Brien went 31/44 for 348 yards, 1 touchdown, and interception.

Defensive player of the Terps: Cornerback Cameron Chism sealed the game with an interception and scored a touchdown to seal the game.
Key play of the game: Cornerback Cameron Chism seals the game with the interception and pick 6.
Thoughts on the Terps: The Terps were very strong in the first half of the game, as sophomore quarterback Danny O’Brien has produced a strong performance and will have high expectations from UMD, but their offense still has some flaws and will improve overtime. As far as their defense, they did force the turnovers and scored two touchdowns to help the Terps stay in the game, but they struggled to keep the Hurricanes offense off their feet from the 2nd and 3rd quarter. Rarely do the Terps ever score on the defensive side of the ball, but it is something that they cannot do every game.
Offensive player of the Hurricanes: Running back Lamar Miller rushed 18 times for 119 rushing yards and a touchdown
Defensive player of the Hurricanes: There was no real player that stood out for the team, except the defensive line near the red zone. They were able to hold the Terps to 4/5 fields goals instead of touchdowns.
Key play of the game: The interception that quarterback Stephen Morris threw was very costly in the game, as he did not notice the MD cornerback.
Thoughts on the Hurricanes: This is going to be a very long season for the Miami Hurricanes. Their rushing attack looks great, but their passing game still has much work to do. With a good portion of their starters suspended for a few games this season, the Canes will need work to do. Jacoby Harris must be kicking himself in the butt for his suspension and wishing he could go back and changes things. The offensive line of the Canes looks strong, but it will take time. As for their defense, their secondary has a lot of work to do, but they managed to keep the Terps out of the end zone and resulted in multiple field goals.
