College Park — Maryland 42No. 8 Boston College 35 College Park -- This was not the same Maryland team that lost its past three games and became an afterthought in the race for the Atlantic Coast Conference championship.

It was new faces - unfamiliar and unheralded playmakers who made names for themselves last night in a jaw-dropping 42-35 upset of No. 8 Boston College.

Play it again

What went right

Maryland quarterback Chris Turner threw for more than 300 yards, and five Terps had more than 40 receiving yards apiece.

What went wrong

The Terps waited until the 10th game of the season to play like they did last night.

Defining moment

On Maryland's first possession of the fourth quarter, Turner completed a pass to Darrius Heyward-Bey for a two-point conversion and a commanding three-touchdown lead at 42-21.

What it means

Maryland has a chance to salvage this season by becoming bowl-eligible with one more win and could better its chances of actually going to a bowl by sustaining its momentum with two more wins.

Up next

The Terps (5-5, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) will travel to Tallahassee, Fla., to face Florida State (6-4, 3-4) on Saturday.
