UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- It was the ultimate in cautious play-calling, the nadir of offensive strategy.Penn State had just covered 79 yards of prime Beaver Stadium real estate in nine plays and two pass interference penalties. Three straight runs by Mike Archie produced a first down inches from the goal line.A touchdown here would erase Michigan's 14-10 third-quarter lead and shift momentum to Penn State. The alternative, for the Nittany Lions, was utterly unthinkable.Yesterday, Penn State learned to live with the utterly unthinkable.

COLLEGE PARK  -   Neither a festive crowd of an announced 6,000-plus at Ludwig Field nor the first Big Ten Conference home game against a nationally ranked opponent could awaken the slow-starting Maryland men's soccer team from its season-long scoring slumber Friday night. After falling behind 16th-ranked Michigan State in the first nine minutes, the suddenly unranked Terps had a few legitimate chances to find the net. A header hit the post in the first half, and a last-ditch header was cleared off the goal line by a Spartans defender with under a minute to go. Though Maryland outplayed the Spartans (4-1-1)

What went right -- The Ravens' defense rose to the occasion. Safety Ed Reed made a nifty interception when Peyton Manning threw late down the middle of the field. The Ravens should have had a second interception on a Colts field-goal drive, but Ray Lewis tipped the Manning pass and it bounced off Chris McAlister's chest. What went wrong -- The Ravens' offense was unable to cash in after Jamal Lewis' two strong runs and a nicely thrown pass to Daniel Wilcox put them in scoring position.

Johns Hopkins has dominated this series to the tune of a 47-4 record, but Loyola Maryland snapped a 13-game skid with an 8-4 victory on April 27, 2013. The Blue Jays are 4-1 on the road this season and are looking for their best away record since going 5-1 in 2007. The Greyhounds are 8-0 at home and seeking their first perfect campaign at home since 1999, when that squad went 8-0. No. 6 Johns Hopkins (10-3) has bookended a three-game losing streak with identical 5-0 runs. Drew Kennedy has won just 43.8 percent (21-of-48)

Weary of hearing about last season, the Maryland Terrapins managed to turn the page by winning their opening game against a potent Navy team that rushed for 412 yards but often literally dropped the ball when it mattered most. The Terrapins, who had lost their last seven games of 2009, hope their 17-14 victory over Navy in a rivalry game nicknamed the "Crab Bowl" will begin to justify the team's new marketing slogan. "I know the catchphrase -- 'Be There for the Comeback' -- and I think that's kind of how everybody feels," said punter Travis Baltz, who subbed for injured kicker Nick Ferrara and kicked the go-ahead, 24-yard field goal with 7:50 remaining.

It was nearly an hour after the game had ended, and Oakland Raiders quarterback Donald Hollas still hadn't seen the replay. And from his perspective he didn't have to, knowing exactly what happened on his second-quarter sneak, when -- with the ball extended -- he appeared to break the plane of the goal line on a second-down play from the 1-yard line."

COLLEGE PARK - Only two words were needed Wednesday to motivate Maryland's young offensive linemen as they lowered their shoulders and plowed into the red sled, pushing it near the end zone. "Goal line! Goal line! Goal line!" barked offensive line coach Tom Brattan. It's a line the Terrapins have struggled crossing in their two games, missing five touchdown opportunities in the red zone on nine chances. It also has been a focus at practice this week, as Maryland (1-1) prepares to host rival West Virginia (2-0)

River Hill's Matt Stara, who has a phenomenally long throw-in, twice stung Mount Hebron with it yesterday as the fourth-ranked Hawks defeated the No. 3 Vikings, 2-1, in Ellicott City. The Hawks (9-1, 7-1), who have won four Howard County titles and four state titles since the school opened in 1996, took a big step toward winning their fifth county title. They have two remaining league games, against Howard and Glenelg. Second-place Mount Hebron (10-1-1, 6-1-1) lost to River Hill for the sixth straight time.

There were comparisons between the defenses of the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, but those discussions can end now. The Ravens turned in their best defensive effort of the season in shutting down one of the NFL's top teams — and they did it without Pro Bowl inside linebacker Ray Lewis. They tied a franchise record with nine sacks. And of all the great linebackers in this game, including the 49ers' Patrick Willis and Navorro Bowman, the best one on the field was the Ravens' Terrell Suggs.

When Blast midfielder Pat Healey hammered home a chance directly in front of the Missouri Comets' open net with just under ten minutes to play Friday night at 1st Mariner Arena — giving the home team its first lead since the game's opening moments — there was a touch of relief. To that point, the Blast made things difficult for itself with uncharactristicly careless moments on defense early and frustrating times at the other end. With Healey's easy finish and forward Adauto Neto scoring his second goal minutes later to provide the eventual game-winner, the Blast came away with a come-from-behind 13-12 win over Missouri before an announced crowd of 6,236.

During the buildup to Monday's "Crab Bowl Classic," the conversation kept coming back to the same subject -- the importance of re-establishing a high-profile college football rivalry between Navy and Maryland. Time will tell whether this will be an annual affair, but here's the skinny after Maryland made a heart-stopping stand at the goal line to score a 17-14 victory over the Midshipmen: It played like a rivalry game, but it was no classic. Terrapins coach Ralph Friedgen was all smiles afterward and, predictably, Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo was not, but that was because of the final score and the dramatic way the game was decided.

Redshirt freshman running back D.J. Adams is being viewed by Maryland coaches as a goal-line back -- at least for now. As preseason camp opened Tuesday, Adams was third on the depth chart behind Da'Rel Scott, a 1,000-yard rusher in 2008 who ran track this spring, and Davin Meggett. Adams, 5 feet 10, 220 pounds, says being a goal-line specialist is fine with him -- anything that gets him onto the field after a season of watching and waiting. "It was different because I've never done that before, so it was a great learning experience," Adams said of redshirting last season.

With their season on the line -- the goal line to be exact -- the Ravens refused to budge. The defense delivered a vintage stand at M&T Bank Stadium, where the Ravens relied on a smothering performance to notch a desperately-needed first victory of the season, a 13-3 win over the New York Jets yesterday. There was no room to run for reigning NFL rushing champion Curtis Martin. There was no place to hide for first-time starting quarterback Brooks Bollinger. And there was no blinking by the Ravens' defense in the third quarter, when it was backed up against its end zone with the lead hanging in the balance.

J.R. Cipra broke a tie with a 40-yard field goal with 4:09 remaining and added one point by splitting the uprights on the ensuing kickoff and the Mariners used a last-minute goal-line stand to defeat the visiting Richmond Raiders, 49-45, and improve their American Indoor Football Association record to 4-0. Mariners defenders Adam Goloboski (Hereford) and Fearon Wright stopped a sneak by Robbie Jenkins with 54 seconds to go on fourth down and inches away from the end zone.
