Maryland's football season was one of determined resilience and unrealized promise. Tonight's Emerald Bowl will decide whether it will be remembered as a winning season.
Maryland 34, Rutgers 24
A week after a deflating loss to Wake Forest, backup quarterback Chris Turner rallies the Terrapins to 20 second-half points in their first victory over a top 10 team since 2004.
Maryland 37, N.C. State 0
Needing a win to be eligible for a bowl, the Terps give their most complete performance of the season, scoring on four straight possessions in the first half and posting their first shutout since 2003.
Wake Forest 31, Maryland 24 (OT)
With the Terrapins about to add to a 24-3 lead late in the third, the Demon Deacons return an interception 100 yards to begin an epic comeback.
North Carolina 16, Maryland 13
The Terrapins manage just three yards in the first quarter and fall to a Tar Heels team that had lost six of its previous seven games.
