COLLEGE PARK - Two games ago, Josh Allen was a forgotten man. Standing on the sideline in Atlanta, Maryland's sophomore running back was little more than a spectator during the Terps' loss to Georgia Tech. His line that night: five carries, zero yards. Last night, he rushed his way into the Maryland history books. Allen ran for 257 yards on 38 carries, and the Terps needed every one of them as they jumped out to a big lead and held on for dear life in an emotional 27-17 victory over Virginia in front of 51,027 at Byrd Stadium.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen admits bouncing back from his first losing season in four years with the program will probably be his toughest task. As the team begins a month of spring practices today, Friedgen will begin repairing his offense by observing position battles across the field, most notably at quarterback and running back. With the position unsettled most of last season, Friedgen said yesterday that the competition for the starting quarterback role among Jordan Steffy, Sam Hollenbach and Joel Statham "is wide open" again.

ATLANTA - Constant changes in the backfield isn't always the greatest sign of stability. But for Maryland's football team, it has been strength in numbers this season. Last year, there was no questioning Bruce Perry's supremacy among the tailbacks, as his 1,242 yards led to Offensive Player of the Year honors in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Now, as the 20th-ranked Terps (10-3) head into Tuesday's Peach Bowl game against Tennessee, Perry is just another guy in a strong group of runners.

COLLEGE PARK - Josh Allen has speed. He's got power. He's got vision, and he's got guts. When he ran for 257 yards against Virginia on national television last week, he got the attention of the entire country. But this season, it's been the thing Allen lacks that has made him such an asset to Maryland. "He doesn't have an ego," said Terps coach Ralph Friedgen. That comes in pretty handy if you're constantly tinkering and tweaking an offense, as Friedgen is with Maryland. At times this year, Allen has been a classic feature back, like last week when he carried the ball 38 times in the Terps' 27-17 defeat of the Cavaliers.

COLLEGE PARK - When the University of Maryland ran up 612 yards of total offense 12 days ago against North Carolina, no one knew if the Tar Heels' defense was that bad, or if the Terps' offensive line had improved significantly. And then came last night. Guess what? The Terps' line is healthy, happy and playing as well as can be expected for a group that has missed so much playing time together. Maryland's offensive line of tackles Stephon Heyer, Eric Dumas, guards C.J. Brooks, Lamar Bryant and center Kyle Schmitt controlled the line of scrimmage early and late in Maryland's 27-17 win against Virginia last night at Byrd Stadium.

Maryland tailback Bruce Perry, who spent nearly half of the 2002 season injured, left yesterday's practice with a right-ankle sprain. It is unclear how much time Perry will miss, though he needed a team trainer to help him into the training room midway through practice, a sign his participation in today's workouts is unlikely. Perry's sprain was one in a series of injuries for the Terps yesterday. Approximately 10 players went down, including slot back Steve Suter, who pulled a hamstring.

Maryland offensive linemen Jared Gaither and Jaimie Thomas will return to practice Monday from a two-week suspension for violating undisclosed team rules, but coach Ralph Friedgen said they're going to have to earn their starting spots back. Gaither started eight games at left tackle last season but was moved to right tackle upon the return of senior Stephon Heyer. The combination of Gaither, at 6 feet 9, 350 pounds, and Heyer (6-6, 320) was expected to give the Terps a durable line. Thomas played in all 11 games and started one last year.

Maryland (5-2, 1-1 ACC) at Duke (2-6, 0-4) Site: Wallace Wade Stadium, Durham, N.C. Time: 1 p.m. Radio: WBAL (1090 AM) Line: Maryland by 13 Series: Maryland leads 27-18 Last meeting: Maryland beat Duke, 59-17, last year in College Park. Last game: Maryland beat Georgia Tech, 34-10; Duke lost to North Carolina State, 24-22. Maryland offense vs. Duke defense: With Chris Downs and Josh Allen both playing well in the backfield, the addition of Bruce Perry may not be that vital, though it will be interesting to see what the run game can do against an improved Blue Devils run defense.

COLLEGE PARK - With the remnants of Hurricane Ivan possibly blowing through West Virginia tomorrow, there is a good chance Maryland's game against the Mountaineers could turn into a rainy, windy, miserable affair. That doesn't bode well for the Terps' passing game, although Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen said yesterday that he won't change his game plan until he's forced to do so. The National Weather Service projects that both rain and wind will arrive in Morgantown late tomorrow. "I think it depends on how much the field drains," Friedgen said.

(Zer)O line Of all MarylandM-Fs shortcomings yesterday, and Ralph Friedgen rattled off several in his post-game news conference, the Maryland coach seemed particularly perturbed with the play of the offensive line. Georgia Tech sacked Joel Statham and Jordan Steffy six times and the Terps also generated virtually nothing on the ground, aside from Josh AllenM-Fs 28-yard first quarter run. M-t[Georgia Tech] is very quick,M-v said Friedgen. M-tThey do a lot of line shifts and they blitz quite a bit. But you know, every blitz they gave us, we practiced against.
