Play it again -- Wake Forest 31, Maryland 24

September 23, 2007|By HEATHER A. DINICH

What went right

Maryland linebacker Erin Henderson had a team-high 12 tackles (seven solo), one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one interception.

What went wrong

Maryland's offense was exposed in overtime, starting on the Wake Forest 25-yard line and finishing on the 47.

Defining moment

Late in the third quarter, Wake Forest cornerback Alphonso Smith intercepted Jordan Steffy's pass in the end zone and ran it back 100 yards for a touchdown.

What it means

Against probably their first competition of the same caliber, the Terps didn't match up, and the offense was the reason.

Up next

The Terps (2-2) travel to No. 11 Rutgers, which had a bye week.
