Dunbar coach Lawrence Smith knows which William Crest moment is his favorite. Crest, the Dunbar quarterback, had already scored two rushing touchdowns against City this past October when the Poets faced a fourth-and-9 from the Knights' 12-yard line, trailing 26-22. The call with 12.4 seconds remaining was a pass, but the senior saw an opening to the left and darted down the sideline, stopping only after his outstretched arms toppled the front pylon of the end zone for the game-winning score.

The calls come every winter into the athletics offices at West Virginia University. Typically they're from young women who've just been proposed to and have one big question themselves: Are the Mountaineers scheduled to play in Morgantown on the day of their wedding? "I've had a lot of girls in tears, saying, `But I've already booked the hall!' " said longtime sports information director Shelly Poe. Chances are, several weddings and a few other social events across the state have been pushed aside this weekend, with No. 21 Maryland coming to play the seventh-ranked Mountaineers on Saturday.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- For a young quarterback at Maryland, learning Ralph Friedgen's complex offense is not unlike trying to learn a second language. It starts in a classroom, requires hours of daily study and then takes practice and more practice. And just when the quarterback feels like he's gained a little confidence, along comes the two-minute, no-huddle attack. He calls the plays, makes all the decisions, keeps one eye on the clock and the other on the defense. It's a pressure-packed, frantic final exam for Terps signal callers.

COLLEGE PARK - The fans called him a traitor. His ex-teammates razzed him. They cursed at him. They told him he wasn't good enough to play with them, then tried to knock him senseless to prove they were right. But when Maryland quarterback Scott McBrien led a 48-17 rout last year of West Virginia, the school he had transferred from in 2001, he ended up having the last word in the matter. "Last year, they were talking all kinds of trash to Scott, like, `You weren't good enough to play here' and all that," said Maryland offensive lineman Eric Dumas.
