Long-time Yellow Jacket offensive coordinator Ralph Friedgen took another step closer to national coach of the year honors as his Terrapins knocked off Clemson 37-20 Saturday night in College Park, after establishing a 34-6 fourth quarter lead. The Terps clinched at least a share of the ACC title with the victory.
Woody Dantzler failed to work any miracles in this battle, throwing three interceptions in the second half, and finishing with only 30 yards rushing. Clemson sank to 3-4 in the conference with the loss.
Many in attendance ran onto the field at the end of the game to celebrate. The crowd of 52,462 was the Terrapins largest since 1983.
