Weekend Wrap

September 05, 1994

MARYLAND (0-1)

Next game: Saturday vs. Florida State at Byrd Stadium, College Park, 12:10 p.m.

Previous game: The Terps were flat and sloppy in a 49-16 loss at Duke. Maryland considered a victory over the Blue Devils, a team it beat the last two years, a must if it wanted to approach respectability this year, but the Terps committed five penalties in the first quarter and fell behind 21-0 in the 17th minute. It was Maryland's worst season-opening loss since 1967, when it fell, 35-0, at Oklahoma, and it ended the Terps' nine-game win streak in Durham. Florida State beat Virginia, 41-17.

Key statistics: Maryland set an NCAA record for yards allowed in 1993, and its defense, which was missing three academically ineligible linemen, didn't show any improvement. Terps WR Jermaine Lewis was shut out for the first time in his career.

Injuries: The Terps reported no serious injuries.

NAVY (0-1)

Next game: Saturday vs. Virginia at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Annapolis, 7 p.m.

Previous game: The Midshipmen were routed by San Diego State in their season opener, 56-14, allowing the Aztecs 503 total yards. Navy trailed 42-0 early in the third quarter before Jim Kubiak threw touchdown passes to TE Kevin Hickman and WR Damon Dixon. Virginia (0-1) also lost its opener on the road to Florida State, 41-17. The Cavaliers have won their last two meetings with Navy, 53-0 and 38-0.

Key statistics: Navy committed five turnovers, including three interceptions by Kubiak. The quickly abandoned running game produced only 20 yards.

Injuries: Navy reported no serious injuries.

BOWIE STATE (1-0)

Next game: Saturday at West Virginia Wesleyan, 1:30 p.m.

Previous game: The Bulldogs, looking for their first winning season since 1989, won their season opener for the first time in six seasons, 13-0, over Elizabeth City State. After struggling badly on offense in the first quarter, Bowie State scored its first touchdown on a 37-yard pass from Darrell Foote to Mike Gordon. Kenley Bullard then blocked a punt early in the second half to set up a 5-yard scoring run by Craig Mitchell.

Key statistics: The Bowie State defense, especially S Chris Banks, controlled the contest. Banks intercepted three passes. The Bulldogs allowed only eight first downs and 157 yards and produced six turnovers. Foote completed 11 of 27 passes for 172 yards. Craig Mitchell rushed for 55 yards and had 50 yards receiving.

Injuries: Bowie State reported no injuries.
