Maryland demolishes Morgan State with 45-point first half

Associated Press

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Backup Danny O'Brien threw three touchdown passes in a 45-point first half, and Maryland enjoyed its highest-scoring performance in 35 years, a 62-3 rout of Morgan State on Saturday night.

Playing on only four days rest after defeating Navy on Monday, the Terrapins (2-0) scored on their opening three possessions and added four touchdowns in the second quarter. That propelled Maryland to its largest victory margin since a 61-0 win over the Citadel on Sept. 13, 2003.

The 62 points was the most by the Terrapins in one game since a 62-24 win over Virginia on Nov. 22, 1975.

Maryland has already matched its win total from last year and owns its first winning streak since 2008.

Morgan State (1-1) gained only six yards in the first half and finished with 85.

O'Brien entered in the second quarter for starter Jamarr Robinson, who tossed two touchdowns for Maryland.
