Quarterback Josh Jackson and the rest of the offense made an emphatic statement with a 63-20 win in their second game under Coach Michael Locksley.

Maryland threw the ball 27 times in the first half of its season opener, more than it did in 11 of 12 games last year.

  • Analysis

Recent history indicates a blowout opening win, even against an overmatched foe, is a good thing for a team's overall prospects.


The Cavaliers beat the defending national champion Terrapins, 2-0, in the teams' second straight Labor Day meeting at D.C. United's stadium.

The Terps, facing an overmatched foe, finished one short of matching the program record for points.

Sports and a tightknit support system helped keep the skinny youngster on a path toward a career in college football.

The former Virginia Tech QB leads the Terrapins into a new era starting with Saturday's season opener against Howard.

Jackson, a graduate transfer from Virginia Tech, edged Tyrrell Pigrome for the starting job after arriving in College Park this summer.

With explosive targets in seniors Jequez Ezzard and Kyle Anthony, the reigning MEAC offensive player of the year is focused on reducing interceptions.

As quarterbacks transfer throughout college football, embattled Terp remained steadfast in College Park.

The Terrapins will begin their conference slate against Illinois and Penn State in December.

Heading into the season, Coach Michael Locksley said his team has seven offensive linemen who “we feel really good about, that we can count on.”

Bruce Miller learned he had earned a scholarship by announcing the news before the Ravens-Packers preseason game.

Ellis McKennie is best known for his response to the death of his friend Jordan McNair. His desire to leave an impact guides his aspirations for the future.

The junior transferred from Virginia Tech with the understanding he would switch to defensive back from wide receiver. But he has no problem with having switched back after spring practice.

Linebackers Keandre Jones and Shaq Smith arrive in College Park with firsthand knowledge of how elite programs operate.

As a freshman last year, Jones recorded 288 receiving yards, the second-highest mark on the team and the most among 2019 returners.

Preseason practice opened Friday, and Jackson has work to do.

The most difficult tests should be at Seton Hall and in the Orlando Invitational.

DCU, chasing a top seed in the MLS's Eastern Conference, rests most of its regulars against a powerful French side getting ready for the Ligue 1 season.
