Recap


Maryland 7, William & Mary 6: Justus Pickett ran 6 yards for the only touchdown of the game with 9:52 remaining and the Terrapins held on against the visiting Tribe.
 
The Terrapins took over after Drake Kuhn missed a 48-yard field goal attempt to start the fourth quarter and drove 69 yards to seize the lead. True freshman quarterback Perry Hills completed a key third-down pass to Kevin Dorsey for 22 yards to the William & Mary 14.
 
Maryland’s defense stopped William & Mary twice after grabbing the lead, including a fourth-down stand at the Tribe 40.
 
The Terrapins had two interceptions and a fumble in their first four possessions of the game and missed a short field goal in the second quarter. William & Mary cashed in for two Kuhn field goals, from 30 and 22 yards respectively, in the first quarter and led 6-0 at halftime.
