COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland senior wide receiver Jermaine Lewis had another big game against Duke last night to extend his school records in receptions, yardage and touchdowns.

Lewis made nine catches, boosting his career total to 144, and one touchdown (a 45-yarder from quarterback Brian Cummings) to give him 20 for his career.

His yardage was 205, lifting his all-time total to 2,330.

"This was one of my best [games]," said Lewis. "I was feeling like I was in a zone out there. Brian made the right reads and we did just about what we were supposed to do."

Lewis' running mate, junior Geroy Simon, was held to two catches for 3 yards, raising his career numbers to 108 and 1,155, respectively.

A rare miss

Joe O'Donnell missed the extra point after the Terrapins' final touchdown, breaking his string of 46 consecutive connections on point-after attempts.

Short week, TV await Terps

Maryland will have a short week before traveling to Georgia Tech for a Thursday night game on ESPN.

The 8 p.m. contest will mark the Terps' first appearance on national TV since Nov. 18, 1989, against Virginia at Byrd Stadium.

Maryland lost the game, 48-21.

Another 40,000-plus crowd

Last night's attendance of 41,013 was the second straight crowd above 40,000 for the Terps.

They drew a capacity audience of 48,055 to newly expanded Byrd for the victory over West Virginia after 32,215 attended the home opener against North Carolina.
