Maryland 20
Georgia 20
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - In front of the first capacity crowd in Gator Bowl history, 16,666, Maryland's Lu Gambino was a one-man wrecking crew, rushing for 165 yards and scoring three touchdowns. Gambino's three scores propelled Maryland to a 20-7 lead, but Georgia reeled off 13 points in the fourth quarter to tie the game. The Bulldogs threatened to win the game in the closing seconds, but time ran out with Georgia on Maryland's four-yard line. Despite the tie, there was no question as to the game's most valuable player. Gambino won the Burkhalter Award, signifying the game's outstanding performer. Gambino was inducted into the Gator Bowl Hall of Fame in 1992.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Three times in the first half Missouri turned the ball over, and all three times Maryland scored a touchdown as the Terrapins defeated the Tigers, 20-7, to earn their first-ever postseason victory. The Terrapin running attack, led by Bob Shemonski and Ed Modzelewski, amassed 266 rushing yards, the second-most by a Maryland bowl team. Maryland defensive back John Idzik set up Maryland's first score with a 26-yard interception return to the Tiger 11-yard line. Shemonski scored on a sweep on the next play for the go-ahead touchdown. Shemonski scored again on a six-yard run late in the second quarter to put the Terps up 20-0.

NEW ORLEANS - In what may have been perhaps the biggest win in Maryland football history, the Terps upset No. 1-ranked and regular season national champion Tennessee, 28-13, in the 1952 Sugar Bowl. The Terps were led by running back Ed "Mighty Mo" Modzelewski (153 yards on 28 carries) and the brilliant play of running back/defensive back Ed Fullerton who scored two touchdowns and threw for another. The Terps put the game out of reach in the third quarter with a 46-yard interception for a touchdown by Fullerton, giving the Terps a 28-6 lead. Maryland finished the season with an overall record of 10-0-0 and a No. 3 national ranking.

MIAMI - This was the first game of the contract that pitted the Big Eight Conference champion against the Atlantic Coast Conference champion. The Terrapins took an undefeated record and the nation's No. 1 ranking into the game against an Oklahoma squad that used a powerful running attack to grind out a second quarter touchdown to propel the Sooners to a 7-0 win. Twice the Terps had first down opportunities with the ball inside the 10-yard line and failed to come away with any points. Despite the narrow loss, the Terrapins claimed the 1953 national championship.

MIAMI - The third-ranked Terps came into the Orange Bowl riding a 15-game winning streak, only to have it snapped by an Oklahoma team that extended its winning streak to 30 games with its 20-6 win. The Terps, who led 6-0 at halftime, were stunned when the Sooners went into their famous "fast break offense" and reeled off two third quarter touchdowns to earn the national championship. Ed Vereb, who scored the Terps' lone touchdown, finished with 108 rushing yards. Maryland was hurt by five turnovers.

ATLANTA - Maryland came away from its first bowl game in 18 years a bitterly disappointed team. The Terrapins dominated Georgia in all phases, but the game was tied 10-10 at the half thanks to a couple of big plays by the Bulldogs. In the third quarter, a costly Terp fumble led to Georgia's go-ahead touchdown. Seven times the Terrapins were inside the Georgia 20-yard line, coming away with only nine points. The Terps' lone touchdown came via Walter White's 68-yard touchdown reception.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The Maryland defense, led by All-ACC defensive tackle Randy White, shut out Tennessee for nearly four quarters but lost the game when the Volunteers' quarterback, Randy Wallace, found Larry Seivers for an 11-yard touchdown pass with 2:08 to play. The Terps were punting from their own 13 when a bad snap from the center was recovered by the Volunteers on the Maryland seven-yard line. Maryland had a chance to win the game but an apparent 20-yard touchdown pass was ruled out of bounds.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The ACC champion Terrapins headed into the 1975 Gator Bowl as a seven-point underdog to the Florida Gators. However, this did not deter the Terps, who were coming off their best season (8-2-1) in 20 years. Maryland shut out the Gators, 13-0, in front of a large pro-Florida crowd in a steady downpour. The Maryland defense held the SEC's total offense leader scoreless and intercepted two Florida passes which led to the first 10 Maryland points. This was the first Terp win over an SEC team since 1955.

DALLAS - Maryland entered the 1977 Cotton Bowl with a perfect 11-0 record, but the hopes for a perfect season were dashed quickly when Houston scored 21 first-quarter points en route to a 30-21 win. The Cougars rushed for a total of 320 yards in the game and 144 in the 21-point first quarter.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Tennessee scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to overcome a 20-16 deficit and defeat the Terps, 30-23, in the 1983 Citrus Bowl. Maryland took a four-point lead into the fourth quarter, thanks to outstanding play from reserve quarterback Frank Reich. Reich entered the game in the second quarter when starter Boomer Esiason suffered a shoulder injury. Reich's one mistake of the day, an interception early in the fourth quarter, set the Vols on Maryland's 14-yard line which led to a Tennessee touchdown run that was the difference.

EL PASO, Texas - The Maryland Terrapins were truly the comeback team of 1984. Maryland trailed Tennessee 21-0 at halftime and erupted for a Terrapin bowl record 22 points in the third quarter. Frank Reich's third-quarter touchdown pass to Ferrell Edmunds put the Terps up 22-21, but the ensuing kickoff was returned for a touchdown by the Volunteers to give them a 27-22 lead. Then with 8:03 left to play, the Terps' offense pounded out a 5:05 drive that was capped by a one-yard scoring run by Rick Badanjek for the game-winning touchdown.

SHREVEPORT, La. - Tech's Chris Boniol hit a 29-yard field goal with no time remaining in the 1990 Independence Bowl, allowing the Bulldogs to escape Shreveport with a 34-34 tie.

ATLANTA - The Terps posted their first bowl win since 1985 with a dominating performance against the Tennessee Volunteers. QB Scott McBrien ran for a pair of touchdowns, Nick Novak booted three field goals, All-America linebacker E.J. Henderson registered 12 solo tackles, and cornerback Curome Cox returned an interception for a touchdown to highlight Maryland's performance. The Terps never trailed in the game, taking their opening possession in for a touchdown on a one-yard run by McBrien and taking a 17-3 lead into intermission. It was the most lopsided bowl loss in UT history.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Former Mountaineer Scott McBrien threw for a career-high 381 yards to help Maryland to a 41-7 victory over West Virginia in the Gator Bowl, a rematch of a regular-season game that was almost as lopsided. Playing against the team he left in 2001, McBrien threw for three scores and ran for another.

Senior Sam Hollenbach passed for 223 yards and two touchdowns to earn game MVP honors, while junior Lance Ball had 98 rushing yards to lead a ground attack which piled up 208 yards, much of that coming in the first half when the Terps built a 21-0 lead and never looked back. The Terrapins were able to keep Purdue's offense, the NCAA's 10th best at 425 yards per game, in check. The Boilermakers were held to 21 rushing yards and 285 total yards.

BOISE, Idaho - Da'Rel Scott ran for a 174 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns in 14 carries to lead the Terrapins to a 42-35 win over Nevada in the 2008 Roady's Humanitarian Bowl. Scott's 49-yard TD sprint early in the fourth quarter broke a 28-all tie and his 2-yard score sealed the win for the Terps, who finished 8-5. The victory was the 600th in school history for the Terps, who won for the fourth time in their last five postseason trips. With his career-long 99-yard kickoff return for a TD in the first quarter, freshman Torrey Smith became the ACC's all-time single-season leader in kickoff return yardage. Maryland rolled up 258 yards on the third-ranked rushing defense in the country, though the Terps defense did its part, picking off Nevada's Colin Kaepernick twice and sacking him three times.

WASHINGTON - Maryland forced four turnovers and Da'Rel Scott ran for a bowl-record 200 yards as the Terrapins defeated East Carolina 51-20 in Ralph Friedgen's last game as coach. Scott had second-half touchdown runs of 61 and 91 yards on back-to-back offensive plays while D.J. Adams had four short touchdown runs. The Terps held East Carolina to a season-low in points while intercepting two passes and recovering a pair of fumbles. Danny O'Brien hit Kevin Dorsey for a 45-yard TD in the first quarter to open the scoring and Adams' 1-yard plunge gave Maryland a 16-3 lead at halftime.
