Boston College got two touchdowns apiece from its offense and defense. "Two defensive touchdowns is a really good job," Eagles quarterback Matt Ryan said. "They played awesome.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- The University of Maryland football team spent this entire season trying to keep the treasure in sight. The Terrapins have played for the sole purpose of reaching the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. They lost that treasure last weekend with a loss to Florida State. Now, Saturday's game at No. 20 Boston College becomes what amounts to a scavenger hunt. The Terps will be looking for a prize -- be it one of the consolation or parting gift var-iety -- in the form of a victory to end the regular season, an Atlantic Division co-championship and a berth in a premium bowl game.

The University of Maryland football team is dealing with constant pain. It's a combination of a hangover, indigestion and a collective head slap, all bound together by the strings of heartache. There isn't an over-the-counter remedy for this headache. For the Terps, it wasn't from partying. It was quite the opposite. It's the queasy feeling that comes from taking a shot and missing the target by two counties. Maryland's main goal for the season -- to win the Atlantic Coast Conference's Atlantic Division title and a berth in the championship game -- became nothing more than wishful thinking after last Saturday's 37-3 drubbing by Florida State.

By The Associated Press Illinois was No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll Monday, the Illini's 13th straight week on top and their fifth consecutive poll as a unanimous choice. The Illini (28-0) beat Northwestern in their only game last week. Coupled with a loss by Michigan State, that was enough for them to win their second straight Big Ten title. The 13-week run at No. 1 is the longest since Kansas was on top for 15 straight polls in 1996-97. Five weeks as a unanimous choice of the 72-member national media panel is the longest such streak since Duke's five-week run in 2001-02.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Before Maryland begins feasting on a steady diet of league games next month, the Terrapins get an Atlantic Coast Conference appetizer tonight against newcomer Boston College. It will be the ACC debut for the sixth-ranked Eagles, who would like nothing better than to beat one of the league's premier teams on the road. "They're the new member. It's a big deal for them to play their first game in the league," Terrapins coach Gary Williams said. "It's our first game of the year too, so that's a big one for us as well.

I learned something horrifying the other day. Nothing in life is free. I used to make a Fourth Meal in the supermarket out of the little morsels and samples that were marketing ploys to try a product. After 10 laps around the store, I ran out of disguises and ended up getting exiled from aisle 5 with a cents-off coupon in my pocket. Of course, for the little yogurt samples I only made five laps. I have an image to uphold. But now it really burns me that I could be charged for participating in a football tradition.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Chris Turner's early legend is one more of image than substance. The lore started when the University of Maryland sophomore quarterback came off the sidelines to replace an injured Jordan Steffy on Sept. 29 at Rutgers and led the the Terps to a victory. He was a natural. The curly hair. The boyish charms. The rock-and-roll family background. And the West Coast laid-back, hang-loose, surfer-dude mentality helped make him an instant celebrity on campus. But yet, despite improving at his position as a starter, the Terps were 2-3 with Turner running the show and in danger of missing out on a bowl bid. Last Saturday, Turner added the missing substance.
