Maryland nearly erased a 34-10 second-half deficit, but Terps quarterback Danny O'Brien threw a late interception with Maryland driving for a potential game-winning score after they had moved the ball to West Virginia's 35-yard line. O'Brien threw for 289 yards, but he had three interceptions, including the costly one with 1:13 left in the fourth quarter. Smith threw for 388 yards for the Mountaineers, and wide receivers Tavon Austin (pictured), Stedman Bailey and Ivan McCartney all had 100-plus receiving yards. Linebacker Terence Garvin (Loyola High) also helped West Virginia with an interception return for a touchdown that gave the Mountaineers a 14-3 lead late in the first quarter.
