Play it again

What went right -- Keon Lattimore rushed for a game-high 106 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries, and in the process he surpassed the 1,000-yard career mark.

What went wrong -- Maryland had five penalties for 65 yards.

Defining moment -- With Jordan Steffy hobbled by cramps and Josh Portis declared ineligible, former third-string quarterback Chris Turner took over and helped put Lattimore in a position to score an 18-yard touchdown that put the Terps ahead 24-7.

What it means -- With Portis out of the picture, there's no question it's Steffy's show now. Last night he took the first step in proving he's capable of handling it.

Up next -- The Terps (1-0) will travel to Miami for a 7 p.m. kickoff Saturday against Florida International (0-1). Maryland beat the Panthers, 14-10, last year at Byrd Stadium. Florida International lost to Penn State yesterday, 59-0.
