BOISE, Idaho - Dean Muhtadi was nothing if not candid. Everyone knows the Humanitarian Bowl wasn't Maryland's first choice for a postseason game, the senior defensive tackle said. No, he said, there won't be a bevy of Terrapins fans in attendance at Boise State's 32,000-seat stadium with the famous blue turf. But, Muhtadi said, it's still a bowl game and the final outing for Terps seniors such as defensive lineman Jeremy Navarre, wide receiver Danny Oquendo, center Edwin Williams and Muhtadi himself.

This is not at all how Maryland hoped to send off its 17 seniors - mired in a four-game losing streak and trying to make a final stand in a season characterized by injuries and two particularly wrenching losses. After Maryland went 2-10 last season, senior starters Joe Vellano, A.J. Francis , Kenneth Tate, Kevin Dorsey and others imagined that their final seasons would coincide with a turnaround performance punctuated by a bowl game. But if college is partly about learning life lessons, then this year's was that things don't always go as expected.

BOISE, Idaho - It's striking what a single victory, particularly of the bowl-game variety, can do for a team's outlook as it contemplates the next season. Before Tuesday's 42-35 Humanitarian Bowl victory over Nevada, the Maryland Terrapins - and certainly their fans - were a little stuck in time. It was hard not to focus on the two regular-season-ending defeats that cost the Terps a shot at the Atlantic Coast Conference title and a warm-weather bowl game. Tuesday's victory, in which the Terps overcame partial-game suspensions of seven players for missing curfew, gave the team something new to ponder in the months before spring practice.

Freshman quarterback Jake Heaps threw four touchdown passes, connecting with Cody Hoffman on three scores, and finished with 264 yards passing to help BYU beat overmatched Texas-El Paso, 52-24, on Saturday in the New Mexico Bowl. It capped a big turnaround for the Cougars (7-6), whose 1-4 start included a loss to in-state rival Utah State. At that point, BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall told his team it would be a remarkable feat to reach a bowl game and win it. The Cougars won five of their last seven regular-season games to become bowl eligible.

BOISE, Idaho - The Humanitarian Bowl began with the announcement that seven Maryland players, including star running back Da'Rel Scott, would not start because of curfew violations. Then things got odder still. Boise State's electric-blue field has often been the setting for memorable games, and Maryland's 42-35 victory over Nevada yesterday more than qualifies. For the Terrapins and their fans, the game will probably best be remembered for an offensive explosion that sent coach Ralph Friedgen's largest senior class of 30 players out with a gritty win. The win - Maryland's fourth victory in its past five bowls - provided some salve for a once-promising Maryland season that had gone sour with two defeats to end the regular season.

A matchup with undefeated Boise State on its home field in the Humanitarian Bowl emerged yesterday as Maryland's most likely bowl scenario, but the Terrapins' spot in the Dec. 30 game was not guaranteed. The Humanitarian Bowl is intrigued by a possible matchup of two undefeated teams - Boise State and Ball State. If Ball State commits, the Terps would be bypassed and would probably end up with an at-large bid to the Motor City Bowl in Detroit or another game, according to bowl officials and others.

Too far. Too expensive. Too cold. Those seem to be the sentiments of Maryland football fans considering - and mostly rejecting - the idea of traveling to Boise, Idaho, to watch the Terps play Nevada in the Humanitarian Bowl. By all indications, Maryland will sell fewer than 1,000 tickets, according to officials familiar with the Dec. 30 game. Last year's Atlantic Coast Conference representative - Georgia Tech - sold about 250 of the allotted 3,000. "We drew the line at Boise," one Maryland fan - who is staying home - wrote yesterday to The Baltimore Sun's "Tracking the Terps" blog.

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.

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.

Let's start with the bottom line: Ralph Friedgen expects to coach Maryland's football team next season. He said that at least three times after the Terps' 19-17 loss to Boston College on Saturday before thousands of empty seats at Byrd Stadium. He said it even as the Terps finished the season 2-10, their worst record since 1967. And he said it with athletic director Deborah Yow, who will ultimately decide his fate, sitting not 20 feet away from him in the Gossett Football Team House.

1 Can't stand Pats: Though it's usually easy enough to root against the Patriots, this time it's imperative. Let them lose to the Bills (1 p.m., chs. 13, 9), and you can spend the Ravens game reveling in the playoff berth. 2 We got the punk: Given this week's little trash talk, has the Broncos-Chargers showdown (8:15 p.m., chs. 11, 4) become an episode of Punk'd? 3 By any other name: They can call it the Independence Bowl if they want (Northern Illinois-Louisiana Tech, 8:15 p.m., ESPN)

Might Jordan Steffy's college football story have a happy ending after all? It seemed the fifth-year quarterback's college football career was all but over. But then, as Maryland (7-5) practiced recently for tomorrow's Humanitarian Bowl matchup with Nevada (7-5), Steffy's name surfaced in a media question-and-answer question with coach Ralph Friedgen. Asked who his backup quarterback was, Friedgen replied that it was "probably" Steffy, who hasn't played since fracturing his right thumb in Maryland's season-opening victory over Delaware.

1 Hit the road, Terp: As you watch Maryland in the Humanitarian Bowl (4:30 p.m., ESPN), note the sponsor, Roady's, is a chain of truck stops. As opposed to the movie Roadie, starring Meat Loaf (left). 2 Odds are: In the Holiday Bowl (8 p.m., ESPN), it's the Cowboys vs. the Ducks. And if you don't know which colleges those are, you shouldn't be betting the game. 3 Read all about it: In the Texas Bowl (NFL Network, 8 p.m.), maybe Western Michigan has a short player who will score five times against Rice.
