"I made some good decisions and the line helped out," said Rettig. "They just said ‘We’ve been here and we can do this, we’ve proven it in practice and in games. The line stepped up and said ‘We are going to protect you here so you can make plays that we know you can.’ It worked out for us. It’s nice we put it together at the end of the game and scored a touchdown."
Thoughts on Boston College 20, Terps 17 (baltimoresun.com)
What surprised me was the way the Terps lost. I noted in my updated game story that – for the second week in a row – the Terps lost because their defense sagged at the end. This is the same defense that ranks 11th in the nation in the FBS.

"That was a play we’ve been working on all week that (offensive coordinator Doug Martin) put in," Dudeck said. "We got the right coverage and there was a linebacker that bit on the fake. I ran down past him and caught the ball in the end zone."

It would take one more play from the defense, a Spenser Rositano interception, to end the game. After Rositano brought that ball in, it was all over. The Eagles weren’t heading to a bowl game or celebrating a major upset. What they did have to celebrate, though, was finally a pay-off for all of their hard work. A few big plays and one important W to shut up the negativity they’ve heard the past five weeks. For one week, at least, they have a winning streak. And now they can take in a much-deserved deep breath of relief, knowing that this team and this season still matter.
