Terps lead Miami 17-15 at half

My profound statement of the day is that Maryland seems to have grown up. Not a perfect half for the Terps, of course. But they are playing with poise and making big plays against a pretty talented Miami team on the road. I don't think that would have happened earlier this season.

Maryland got one big turnover -- a 60-yard interception-return touchdown by Alex Wujciak -- in the half, and I think they'll need another. Wujciak is excellent at reading the quarterback's eyes, and he seems to be inside freshman Stephen Morris's head. He got his hands on another ball following the pick.

With quarterback Jacory Harris and tailback Damien Berry injured, Miami's most potent first-hjlf threat was receiver Travis Benjamin (three catches, 110 yards).

Other stats: Miami leads 295-152 in total yards and Danny O'Brien is 5-for-16 for 80 yards and a touchdown pass. For the Terps, it's all about big plays. They've come to rely on them, and have often delivered.
