RALEIGH, N.C. - Playing one of the best all-around games of his career, Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown nearly topped his school record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a season. Brown ran for three touchdowns and passed for two more in Saturday's 41-21 victory over North Carolina State. With 138 rushing yards, Brown moved to 538 for the season. His 574 yards rushing in 2011 are a school record. Brown said his total on Saturday was aided by running backs Brandon Ross and Albert Reid , who the Wolfpack defense could not ignore on read-option plays.

The first time the Ravens' defense squared off with Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell, he manufactured his most productive NFL game. The Ravens say they've learned a lot about how to defend Bell after surrendering 93 yards on 19 carries to the 6-foot-1, 244-pound second-round draft pick during a 19-16 loss to the Steelers on Oct. 20 at Heinz Field. Heading into Thursday night's rematch at M&T Bank Stadium, Bell is a focal point for the Ravens, who have the NFL's 11th-ranked run defense.

SAN JOSE , Calif. -- Quarterback Keenan Reynolds ran past an overmatched San Jose State defense and into the NCAA record book early Saturday morning, leading Navy to a 58-52 victory in triple overtime at Spartan Stadium . Reynolds rushed for a career-high 240 yards and a career-high seven touchdowns, the most rushing touchdowns in NCAA history by a quarterback. In the third overtime, Navy safety Parrish Gaines intercepted San Jose State quarterback David Fales ' pass in the end zone on third-and-goal from the 3. Moments later, Reynolds fittingly raced 25 yards on first down for a touchdown, sealing Navy 's win. "Guys are blocking their butts off the whole game," Reynolds said.

Less than a week ago I found out about the Inner Harbor 2.0 master plan ( "Inner Harbor reborn," Nov. 17). This is an ambitious and much needed concept. Although I make a valiant effort to stay on top of local news and projects, the Waterfront Partnership's proposal came as a complete surprise. The document itself is 70 pages long and only available on line. The Waterfront Partnership website has a comments section, and I plan to take advantage of it after thoroughly reviewing what is on the drawing board.

Pro Bowl outside linebackers Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil entered Sunday with a combined 17 sacks, but were stonewalled by the Bears' offensive line. They combined for just one tackle and no sacks. “They were chipping the edges quite a bit,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “That had a lot to do with it. It was a tough pass rush day as far as the field conditions. But they were chipping the edges for the most part all day, then getting guys out.” Dumervil also was flagged for unnecessary roughness when he shoved Bears quarterback Josh McCown to the ground in the fourth quarter.

Stuck in neutral throughout the season, the Ravens finally resurrected their running game Sunday. A bright spot for the Ravens during a 23-20 overtime loss to the Bears at Soldier Field was rushing for a season-high 174 yards on 41 carries. Three-time Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice regained his old form as he exploited the Bears' vulnerable run defense, rushing for a season-high 131 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries. Rice displayed speed, power and elusiveness unseen since last season when the Ravens won the Super Bowl . "We're heading in the right direction," Rice said.

Considering what Navy's Keenan Reynolds had done to Hawaii the week before, the South Alabama football team couldn't be blamed for focusing its defensive efforts on the sophomore quarterback Saturday. But the Jaguars forgot to account for Darius Staten. The senior slotback had seven carries for a career-high 127 yards and one touchdown to propel the Midshipmen to a 42-14 rout before an announced 33,086 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Navy scored 32 unanswered points over the final three quarters as a defense missing three starters shut out South Alabama for nearly 40 minutes.

BLACKSBURG, Va. - Not since Maryland beat West Virginia at M&T Bank Stadium to start the season 4-0 had senior quarterback C.J. Brown felt as good as he did last week. The concussion Brown sustained at Florida State in early October was the first major setback. It was followed by a string of blows Brown took elsewhere that seemed to slow him down both physically and mentally. But at Lane Stadium, against heavily favored Virginia Tech, Brown finally delivered his own knockout punch Saturday.

When Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith caught three touchdown passses as a rookie against the St. Louis Rams, receivers coach Jim Hostler told him not to grow accustomed to being that wide open every game. It's been good advice for the former University of Maryland standout. Although the passing connection between quarterback Joe Flacco and Smith has remained productive all season, it's been difficult for them to strike deep on a consistent basis. Smith leads the Ravens with 41 receptions for 753 yards and is averaging 18.4 yards per reception, but has caught just two touchdown passes.

The roots of Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds' development in running out of his team's triple-option offense go back to his own roots outside Nashville, Tenn. On a hot summer day when Reynolds was about 13, he joined his uncle and a group of older athletes Andrew Reynolds was training for a high school track team he coached. "I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'll just say I couldn't finish it," Keenan Reynolds recalled this week. "I was hyperventilating. He didn't take it easy because it was my first time out. He treated me like I was a seasoned vet out there.
