Charles Scott ran for three touchdowns and LSU took advantage of Georgia Tech's special teams mistakes in a surprisingly easy 38-3 win over the Yellow Jackets in the Chick-fil-A Bowl last night in Atlanta. LSU outscored the No. 14 Yellow Jackets 28-0 in the second quarter and led 35-3 at halftime. Scott, who rushed for 65 yards, had two touchdowns in the decisive quarter. A year after winning the national championship, LSU (8-5) lost three of its final four regular-season games but regrouped for a dominant bowl victory over Georgia Tech (9-4)

Midway through November, Maryland had lost three straight games and it began to look as if the team might never pick up its sixth win and become bowl eligible. The turnover-prone Terps had just lost at home to Syracuse, 20-3, in a game in which Maryland players conceded the team appeared flat. Maryland's outlook has changed dramatically since then. A team that had never won a game in November under third-year coach Randy Edsall went on to win two of its last three in the regular season.

COLLEGE PARK — Representatives of the Military Bowl watched Saturday's Maryland-N.C. State game and said they would like to have Maryland in the game at Washington's RFK stadium. "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.

Though bowl games and Maryland Terrapins have been mutually exclusive terms in the first two years under Randy Edsall, many believe that will change in 2013.  Given the fact that the Terps seemed to be headed toward becoming bowl-eligible last season until they ran out of healthy bodies -- particularly at quarterback -- winning at least six games this fall doesn't appear to be far-fetched. But how far do you think the Terps can go -- and to which bowl? I think it's fair to assume that Maryland won't go from 4-8 to a Bowl Championship Series game, though Ralph Friedgen did that in his first year after inheriting a 5-6 team loaded with NFL talent from Ron Vanderlinden in 2001.

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.

Oklahoma vs. Stanford Andrea Adelson Orlando Sentinel I have had my eye on the Sun Bowl between Stanford and Oklahoma since the games were announced earlier this month. Why? For one, I want to see Stanford in its first bowl appearance since 2001, against what has been one of the premier programs in the country over the last decade. For another, I want to see Heisman runner-up Toby Gerhart go against the tough Oklahoma run defense. Gerhart is averaging 144.7 rushing yards per game, while the Sooners rank No. 7 in the country in rushing defense at 88.6 yards per game.

COLLEGE PARK -- Before he left Byrd Stadium on Saturday night, Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen met with bowl representatives to discuss the remaining postseason possibilities after a 38-24 loss to Wake Forest eliminated the Terps from the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game and a shot at the Orange Bowl. It was the first such meeting since 2003, but that accomplishment was tempered by the disappointment that Maryland had just squandered a chance at so much more. Friedgen headed home resigned to the fact that the Terps most likely will play their last game of the season on Dec. 29 or Dec. 30 - probably in the Music City Bowl, the Champs Sports Bowl, or against Navy in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien felt uneasy. It was moments after Florida State's 30-16 victory over Maryland last Saturday, and Seminoles players seemed eager to wish O'Brien good luck in the next Atlantic Coast Conference game. The Florida State players weren't just being polite. The Seminoles need the Terps to knock North Carolina State out of the Atlantic Division title race today for Florida State to claim the crown. O'Brien immediately felt uncomfortable in the spoiler's role.

Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen said Sunday that the Terps deserve a bid to an "upper-echelon" bowl game befitting a team that tied with two other schools for the third-best record in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Maryland's 38-31 victory over North Carolina State on Saturday pushed its record to 8-4 (5-3 ACC) — a mark that Friedgen said entitles the Terps to one of the top bowls affiliated with the ACC. Bowl games are not required to pick teams based on final record alone, making their selections difficult to forecast.

Almost any bowl game looks appealing to a Maryland football team that remained on its chilly campus after last season while other Atlantic Coast Conference teams prepared for postseason games in enticing locations such as Miami and Orlando, Fla. But of course, there is appealing (for example, the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta, or the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando) and then there is spectacular (the Orange Bowl in Miami). With three regular-season games left, many Maryland players and coaches can't help but glance at the list of bowl games and contemplate their possible December or January destinations.

Men's basketball was still below 50 percent — it was 31 percent this year.
