Maryland collapses in second half against Bowling Green
It was only the second game of the season, but it was a weird one, complete with a lightning delay that extended halftime, and it could have been a sign of things to come this fall. The Terps held the high-powered Falcons offense down and led 13-6 at halftime. It was all Bowling Green the rest of the way.
Maryland was outscored 42-14 in the second half of the 48-27 defeat. Bowling Green quarterback Matt Johnson threw for 491 yards and six touchdowns, and the Terps defense gave up 692 yards. Athletic director Kevin Anderson later said this loss was when he started to really evaluate former coach Randy Edsall's status.
