James averaged 41 yards on nine punts, and put two of those boots inside the Maryland 20 yard line. In addition, James employed the sprint punt to perfection, preventing terrapin return man Steve Suter from becoming a factor in the game. James' kicks were a big reason that Suter averaged only six yards per return.
Jones, despite being tested repeatedly by the Terrapin passing game, refused to give up any deep plays. Jones broke up three Terrapin passes, including two on consective plays in the end zone.
On the evening, the Georgia native also had seven tackles, including five solo stops.
