According to Maryland cornerback Kevin Barnes, the Terps' inability to create turnovers last season was the one thing that stopped the defense - and the team - from taking its game to the next level.
After only two games, the Terps have already shown progress in that area, with three FIU turnovers helping the Terps to a 26-10 win over Florida International on Saturday night. In its first two games, Maryland grabbed three interceptions - including two by Barnes. The Terps totaled eight interceptions all last season.
