* Maryland players are clearly trying to put the best spin on their trip to Boise for the Humanitarian Bowl. "I just really want to see this blue field (at Boise State's stadium)," center Edwin Williams said.
*Coach Friedgen said the senior-heavy team, which has lost three out of four games, believes it's important to go out with a win against Nevada. "Eight and five. I think, is a very commendable season with a bowl trip," he said.
*Fridge said there is a possibility that linebacker Rick Costa, accused last month of punching a police officer, could return for the game. He was indefinitely suspended after being charged in the incident.
*Maryland is getting ready to entertain 22 prospects. They'll be shown around campus on Friday. Fridge and other coaches then will depart for recruiting trips next week while team members take final exams.
