them either. they needed this game to become bowl eligible. randy just needed a hug. taking his 2-8 terps into winston, salem. to cameron ford, 13 plays, 75- yard drive. 7-0. maryland responding. cj brown on the wheel route and pinkett scores. we had ourselves a ball game. 3rd quarter, missed opportunity. dave visits the love shack. oh no. illegal shift, so bring that back. same drive, nick, those boots were not made for kicking. wide right. so again, those missed opportunities just killing the terps. pulling away here. could have ate a sandwich and called mom. the nightmare from maryland continues. check these highlights out. mike london in virginia with a mathematical change to go to the acc championship. perry jones with one of his eight receptions and is this a
tough one. gets blasted. the linebacker says let me see your grill. 14-13. last play of the game here, bruce, florida state rolls a pass. the receiver doesn't get out of bounds. so the clock runs out, but the ref says he didn't make the catch. there are three seconds on the clock. virginia was in the locker room. they had to come back out. florida state has a chance to kick the field goal and they miss it. still alive for the acc championship. navy still seeking bowl eligibility. third quarter, oh, it's tricky. to the two-yard line. then a couple of plays later, chris procter is going to keep it. 24-20 navy, but matt faulker faulkner, big day for him. no bowl for navy. all right. bruce thought he had it all figured out. that's what washington's problem was. after losing three straight,
gabby called off yesterday's morning practice, figuring his team would come out ready to mask the maple leaves. first period, hit me with your best shot, fire away. his third of the season, 1-0. thomas under siege all night. second period, puck off the skate and he gets bozac. 2nd period was to die for. and washington died. six goals for the maple leaves. toronto wins 7-1. ties the most goals the caps have given up this season. all right, i can't tell you -- i can tell you this. i went to dallas for the first skins, cowboys game and i can't remember demarco murray playing. now dallas' rookie runningback might be their key guy since felix jones went down. all week long the redskins have been scheming to stop number 29. good luck. he's rushed for 600 yards, including the team record, 253 against st. louis. that made life easier for tony
romo. >> the way he is running the ball, it makes romo's job easier. you see what they did to buffalo. even new england. i mean, these guys are legitimate with him running the ball. >> let's talk about women's college basketball. looking to get the lady hoyas off the bat. hoyas opened up the game on a 22-2 run and they rolled. georgetown winning it easy tonight. 66-36 was your final score of the night. a busy day in sports. boy, i tell you, redskins tomorrow. >> any chance the skins win? >> no. >> okay. going to be nice. >> at least it will be nice. increasing clouds for the afternoon. get outside if you can. >> 31. thanks. we'll see you back here
