ORLANDO, Fla. Desmond Jennings Jersey . -- Maryland is attempting to rebuild its football program and first-year Terrapins coach DJ Durkin isnt looking for perfection.He just wants a team that will continue to fight.The Terrapins, playing a UCF team they should have dominated, needed every ounce of resolve to escape with a much tougher than expected 30-24 double-overtime win on Saturday night. Maryland got the win when freshman backup quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome entered the game for his only play under center and ran 24 yards for the game-winning touchdown.Pigrome replaced starting quarterback Perry Hills after the senior injured his shoulder in the second overtime.Thats our team, we will figure it out somehow, Durkin said. It can be ugly or whatever it is.Maryland improved to 3-0 and begins Big Ten play in two weeks.This one was definitely full of miscues and missed opportunities for both programs. But after failing to convert on two second-half field goals and going into overtime tied 17-17, the Terrapins made fewer mistakes as Hills moved the offense efficiently.It was the exact opposite for Knights freshman quarterback McKenzie Milton, who made his starting and playing debut Saturday. Filling in for injured senior Justin Holman, Milton fumbled the ball six times, losing three and he also threw one interceptions.But his most costly turnover came in the second overtime he fumbled the ball away at the 2-yard line on what appeared to be an incomplete pass but the officials ruled it a fumble. Maryland did not have a turnover for the third straight game this season.We kind of drew out a screen to the right, trying the get the tight end to the back side, said Milton, who completed 21 of 36 passes for 260 yards and two touchdowns. The ball kind of just slipped out.Three plays later, the Terrapins seized on the opportunity after squandering chances early in the game. Hills, who faced constant pressure all night from the UCF defense, threw for 127 yards and was sacked five times. Freshman running back Lorenzo Harrison led a contingent of Maryland running backs with 77 yards and one touchdown on 15 carries.It was exciting, said Maryland running back Kenneth Goins. Obviously not a place we want to be, we expected to do better than we did but it was exciting. We pretty much trained for this type of environment. So we just go out and play.THE TAKEAWAYMaryland: The Terrapins may not be as explosive offensively as they looked in their first two games. They had scored 93 points to start the season, but facing tougher and faster defense than they had against Howard and Florida International proved to be problematic. Hills was pressured and hit often, and was sacked four times in the first half.UCF: Freshman quarterback McKenzie Milton was the surprise starter for the Knights and while he did some positive things he put his team in the hole with costly turnovers in the first half. He committed three turnovers in the first two quarters, two as a result of bad exchanges with the center. His fourth turnover, one of six fumbles, opened the door for Maryland to win the second overtime.UP NEXTMaryland: The Terrapins are heading into a bye week before opening their Big Ten schedule at home against Purdue.UCF: The Knights hit the road next week to face Florida International in their last non-conference game. Then UCF will open up AAC play on Oct. 1 at East Carolina.---AP college football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Steven Souza Rays Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- One week after a heartbreaking overtime loss to Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky took out its frustrations on Houston Baptist Saturday night.Nicholas Norris scored three touchdowns, Western Kentucky scored on its first eight possessions and the Hilltoppers went on to rout Houston Baptist 50-3 in a nonconference game.We needed a lot of fine-tuning to do from the loss we had last week, Norris said. So we tried to work on the little things, especially with us going into a hostile environment next week against Louisiana Tech.Western Kentucky (3-2) wasted no time, going 82 yards in just four plays on the opening drive for the games first touchdown. Anthony Wales capped the march, running nearly untouched through the Houston Baptist (2-3) defense for a 45-yard touchdown less than a minute-and-a-half into the contest.Mike Whites 34-yard touchdown pass to Norris made it 14-3 after the first quarter.We came out and did what we needed to do and executed early on, Western Kentucky coach Jeff Brohm said. We moved the ball, scored points, and took care of the football. We improved upon certain things that we didnt do well last week. Overall, we just took care of business, it was a good win.The Hilltoppers scored so fast and so often, that they had only 15:33 of possession through three quarters, compared to 29:27 for the Huskies, despite leading by 47 points.Houston Baptist coach Vic Shealy knew quickly that his Huskies were overwhelmed. Houston Baptist is in only its fourth season of fielding a football team.When your only two losses are against SEC schools, and one of them is an overtime loss that many probably would like to have over again, you know they are a quality team coming in playing, Shealy said. They didnt disappoint. Theyre really athlettic, well coached and play hard. Custom Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys. We knew who we were playing.Brohm emphasized getting back on track after last Saturdays 31-30 overtime loss to Vanderbilt.I think it was important to clean some things up and learn from our mistakes, Brohm said. And thats kind of how weve been the last couple of years. We just try to improve each and every week. Were pretty good at learning from our mistakes, being critical of ourselves. We did that today.Norris also caught a 19-yard pass from White in the second quarter and had an 85-yard touchdown run on an end-around to open the Hilltoppers scoring in the third period.Also, in a 20-point third quarter, Nacarius Fant had a 50-yard punt return for a touchdown and Marcus Trigg had a 12-yard touchdown run.Skyler Simcox added a 50-yard field goal as the game was quickly out of hand.Houston Baptists only points came on a 25-yard field goal by Alec Chadwick with 34 seconds left in the opening quarter.THE TAKEAWAYHouston Baptist: The Huskies have now given up at least 50 points in all three of their losses this season. They previously lost 56-13 to Central Arkansas and 52-16 to Sam Houston State.Western Kentucky: The Hilltoppers dominated the game in nearly every facet and did not punt until the 1:33 mark of the fourth quarter. Western Kentucky piled up a season-high 535 yards of total offense and had 23 first downs in the game.UP NEXTHouston Baptist: The Huskies have a bye week next week, and then return to action for a homecoming matchup against Nichols on Oct. 15.Western Kentucky: The Hilltoppers travel to Ruston, Louisiana, to face Conference USA foe Louisiana Tech on Thursday night.
