ORLANDO, Fla. -- It was already midnight, but his smudged eye black and red uniform were still on. Maryland quarterback Sam Hollenbach gripped his Most Valuable Player trophy, and as he stood to leave the post-game news conference late last night, coach Ralph Friedgen looked him in the eye and said, "I'm glad you decided to stay." So was he. Playing in his first bowl game and last game for the Terps, Hollenbach capped a rocky career in which he came close to transferring with a nearly flawless performance in a 24-7 win against Purdue (8-6)

College Park -- The Maryland football team will spend Christmas in Orlando, Fla., having extended its bowl trip to more than a week, leaving Dec. 22 and returning Dec. 30.

It should be an all-expense-paid trip, but it's possible the athletic department...

Maryland's timetable has run out for Navy to agree to play the Terps in football in 2010, Maryland athletic director Debbie Yow said yesterday, and Maryland is still in search of a nonconference opponent to add to the schedule that year. "They're not ready to sign a contract," Yow said. "We need to schedule a game. "Chet [Gladchuk, Navy's athletic director] was aware of the fact we were very concerned about the timing element. If we weren't going to play Navy in 2010, we were really cutting it close to having a replacement game," she said.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- When quarterback Chris Turner was injured in the second quarter, Maryland was left with backups who had barely played, if at all. Maryland had hoped eventually to find more playing time this season for Jamarr Robinson, a redshirt sophomore, or freshman Danny O'Brien. But the Terps clearly didn't want to lose Turner, a fifth-year senior, in a close game. He suffered a knee injury on an incomplete pass with the Terps trailing 24-21 in the second quarter. Turner was 12-for-19 for 135 yards when he limped off. His first pass of the game had been intercepted, leading to a Wolfpack touchdown.

As a reporter covering Maryland football, you begin to feel you're asking the same questions after each game these days.  You ask about the effort, about the tackling, the receiver drops, the slow starts. The bottom line is that the Terps often look outmanned, particularly against a solid team like Notre Dame, which may be headed to the Champs Sports Bowl. The Terps went to that bowl game in Florida in 2006. Remember? Maryland's last interesting game was nearly a month ago against Clemson.

State (5-3 ACC): The Wolfpack could have won the ACC's Atlantic Division with a victory at Maryland in the final week of the regular season, but getting eight regular-season victories — N.C. State's most since 2002 — isn't a bad consolation. About West Virginia (5-2 Big East): The Mountaineers closed out the season on a four-game Big East winning streak, but it wasn't enough to earn the conference's BCS bid. A 19-14 loss to Syracuse and a 16-13 overtime loss at Connecticut cost West Virginia a BCS bowl slot.

"We'd love to have Maryland," bowl president Steve Beck said in an interview. "(We're) right down the road. It would be great to have them. " The question is whether Maryland would like to stay close to home — the game is Dec. 29 — or whether the Terps will have the option of traveling to a higher bowl in the ACC pecking order.

Maryland accepted a bid yesterday to play Nevada, a Western Athletic Conference team with the nation's second-ranked running game, in the Humanitarian Bowl on Dec. 30 in Boise, Idaho. The bid was expected. Officials of the bowl, which has the eighth pick of Atlantic Coast Conference teams, had publicly expressed interest in the Terrapins, who finished 7-5 after losing three of their last four regular-season games. Many Maryland fans had hoped for a game closer to home, and one in a warm-weather climate.
