Nick Ferrara kicked a 32-yard field goal with 1:39 left, Danny O'Brien threw for 348 yards and a touchdown, and Maryland beat short-handed Miami 32-24 Monday night in coach Randy Edsall's first game with the Terrapins.
Stephen Morris capably filled in for Harris, going 19 for 28 for 195 yards and running for a touchdown. But on a fourth-and-4 in the final minute, the sophomore threw an interception that Cameron Chism took 54 yards for the clinching score with 39 seconds remaining.
It was the second touchdown by the Maryland defense, both involving Chism. He also forced a fumble that provided the Terps with a 20-14 halftime lead.
