Injury report It appears that senior quarterback Chris Turner (knee) might be able to play against Boston College in Maryland's final game of the season - but he is unlikely to play Saturday at Florida State. Punter Travis Baltz (finger) is done for the year, and safety Kenny Tate (ankle) is probably done, too. Replay Backup quarterback Jamarr Robinson proved elusive, running for 129 yards, including a 28-yarder. But the Terps could not make a first down until Robinson ran 14 yards to the Virginia Tech 45 with just under four minutes remaining in the first quarter.

A Towson University student was arrested this week after he allegedly threatened on social media to carry out an attack at the college that he said would be "Virginia Tech part 2. " Matthew David Cole, 18, was charged Thursday with making threats of mass violence and disturbing the operation of the school. He posted $100,000 bail and was released from jail Friday. "A thorough investigation is continuing, however, at this time it has been determined that there is no longer a threat to the university community," officials wrote in an email to students and staff.

There are almost always moments that define a basketball game. When I think of three  memorable snapshots from Saturday's game, two of them involve Sean Mosley. That's not unusual this season. Mosley may not score as much as fans like, but he's clearly the team leader. Here are those moments: * With Maryland leading 64-58, Mosley is fouled by Robert Brown, a freshman, on a desperation shot with the shot clock about to expire. A truly "freshman" foul, right? But Mosley made him pay by converting two free throws to push the lead back to 66-58.

Here are five reasons why Maryland's 27-24 overtime victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday was stunning: * Consider the previous week -- an alarmingly flat Maryland performance against Syracuse. The Terps had zero sacks against the Orange and seven against Virginia Tech. That's like driving from zero to 60 in two seconds. * C.J. Brown was a different player Saturday, more like his old self. He's really been pounded this season. He had seemed tentative at times and simply worn down at others.

Gilman All-Metro defensive end Melvin Keihn has whittled a list of more than 50 scholarship offers to three finalists: Maryland, Virginia and Virginia Tech. Keihn, who originally planned to announce his oral commitment at the Under Armour All-America game Jan. 2, said he will announce his decision by Christmas. His list of three is down from five, including Penn State and Miami. He said Thursday that he settled on his three finalists because of the combination of their proximity to home, his comfort level with the coaches and the players and the schools' engineering programs.

Mark Turgeon is no bracketologist. The Maryland basketball coach keeps himself sheltered in a Rating Percentage Index-free zone. But while Turgeon has neither the time nor the inclination to regularly assess his team's chances of making the NCAA tournament, he knew enough about the calendar Thursday night to understand that time was growing short for the Terps to begin recording some all-important conference road wins. After losing their first four Atlantic Coast Conference road games, the Terps broke through against Virginia Tech, beating the Hokies, 60-55, in front of an announced 5,465 at Cassell Coliseum.

With Maryland set to play at Virginia Tech on Saturday, I responded to some questions from Andy Bitter, a sports reporter who covers the Hokies for the Virginian-Pilot and Roanoke Times. In response, I asked Bitter some questions on Virginia Tech. Here are his responses. Jeff Barker: Does Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas appear to be back on track? I know he had a few rocky games. Andy Bitter: He had probably his best game this year against Miami, going 25-for-31 for 366 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Damien Russell is 43 now. It's been 22 years since the former defensive back played for Virginia Tech. Hokies fans might not recognize the name, but Russell is an important figure in the program's history.

Russell helped launch a procession of talented Fullers - Vincent Jr., Corey, Kyle and Kendall - from Baltimore to Blacksburg, Va.

COLLEGE PARK - The transformation took place late last season, on what started out as a dreary November afternoon at Virginia Tech's Lane Stadium. Maryland went into Blacksburg thought to be no more than road kill for the Hokies and emerged with a bit of a swagger after a 27-24 overtime victory. When the 2014 Terps make their Big Ten debut Saturday at Indiana, there is a growing confidence about playing on the road. Maryland (3-1) has won four straight true road games, including wins at South Florida on Sept.

Virginia linebacker Isaiah Davis, the younger brother of Maryland standout safety Sean Davis, verbally committed to the Terrapins Tuesday night. Davis said he called offensive coordinator Mike Locksley as Maryland wrapped up practice Tuesday night and later spoke to coach Randy Edsall. “For one, being close to home [was appealing] and having my family being there,” Davis said during a phone interview. “Playing in the Big Ten, there's a lot of competition in that conference, and having the opportunity to play with my brother on the same team [was attractive]

Synagro Technologies, a Baltimore-based waste management company, faces grass-roots opposition to its application to spread industrial waste as fertilizer over farms in seven Virginia counties. As a result of the backlash - coming in the form of letters, phone calls and emails - the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality has delayed signing off on Synagro's plans.

According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com, Turgeon had the roughest spring of any Division I coach .
