WASHINGTON (AP) - The Maryland Terrapins forced four turnovers and Da'Rel Scott ran for 200 yards as head coach Ralph Friedgen ended his 10-year run at his alma mater Wednesday with a 51-20 victory over East Carolina in the Military Bowl.

Scott had second-half touchdown runs of 61 and 91 yards on back-to-back Terrapins offensive plays and posted the school's first 200-yard rushing game since 2003. D.J. Adams had four short touchdown runs for the Terrapins, who finished 9-4.

Dominique Davis completed 33 of 54 passes for 255 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for East Carolina (6-7), which scored a season-low in points and committed 15 penalties.

The game was supposed to be a shootout from the start - East Carolina came in averaging 38 points per game and allowing 43 - but the Pirates' no-huddle attack was disjointed all game.

The first half included 12 penalties, four turnovers, a blocked extra point and a missed 25-yard field goal. The Terrapins scored on a 45-yard touchdown pass from ACC rookie of the year Danny O'Brien to Kevin Dorsey, a 1-yard run by Adams and a 23-yard field goal by Travis Baltz. East Carolina didn't score until Mike Barbour's 37-yard field goal with 6:08 left in the half - the longest the Pirates had gone into a game without scoring this season.

The Terrapins began scoring at will in the second half. They added to a 16-3 halftime lead when David Mackall returned a tipped interception 35 yards to East Carolina's 1, setting up Adams' second touchdown.

Dwayne Harris' 36-yard punt return led to East Carolina's first touchdown, a 20-yard pass to Lance Lewis that made the score 23-10, but the Terrapins responded with a 69-yard drive capped by another touchdown from Adams.

Scott ran up the middle untouched for a 61-yard score on the first play of a drive late in the third quarter, and did virtually the same from 91 yards on the first play of the next drive early in the fourth.
