bobp@herald-mail.com COLLEGE PARK, Md. - University of Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen gave a math lesson Tuesday. Depending on what happens on Saturday, Friedgen might be speaking of history his next time at the podium. That's just how important Saturday's game at Florida State is for the Terrapins. Things will either add up or make Maryland yesterday's news by the outcome of the game. At stake is not only a chance to reach a bowl game, but an opportunity to play in the first-ever Atlantic Coast Conference championship game on Dec. 3 in Jacksonville, Fla. "If you do the math, we're not out of this thing," Friedgen said.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- In a lot of ways, the University of Maryland football season could be summed up by the opening verse of "Amazing Grace. " Amazing grace, how sweet the sound That sav'd a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see. Here the Terrapins are. After 13 weeks of meandering through the season with as much doubt as promise, No. 22 Maryland sits on the doorstep of winning the Atlantic Coast Conference's Atlantic Division on Saturday night when it faces Florida State in a nationally televised game.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The battle with Wake Forest for the Atlantic Coast Conference Atlantic Division title Saturday became a wake for the Maryland football team's league title hopes. In a classic battle of college football "can you top this?" the Demon Deacons found a way to trump every Maryland score to take a 38-24 victory and earn a berth against Georgia Tech in next weekend's ACC Championship Game in Jacksonville, Fla. Wake Forest, the only ACC team that's been more of a shocking upstart than Maryland this season, beat the Terps more times to the perimeter and got some clutch play from freshman quarterback Riley Skinner to become the king of the hill in the Atlantic.

Nelson would be a great delegate To the editor: I recently read Bob Maginnis' interview with House of Delegates candidate Vikki Nelson. It was an excellent article, but missed an area that I know Nelson cares deeply about: The plight of seniors on fixed incomes. Having served with Nelson as a delegate to the White House Conference on Business, as well as being a fellow Rotarian in the Hagerstown Club, and working by her side on other community and state projects, I believe I can provide some insight into Nelson's views.

By DAVE IVEY The Associated Press STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Instead of discussing X's and O's, Joe Paterno spent much of his weekly press conference Tuesday on the issues of on-campus gambling and job security among Big Ten coaches. Four conference coaches have lost their jobs this season. Illinois fired Lou Tepper and Indiana fired Bill Mallory, while Purdue's Jim Colletto and Minnesota's Jim Wacker chose to resign. "I'm saddened. All the people that are leaving this year are all really quality people - people I like very much," said Paterno, who has been at Penn State for 47 seasons, including 31 as head coach.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Success has one funny quirk. It has a habit of being controlled by failure. Teams with high hopes when the season starts usually begin lowering the bar as losses enter the picture. The University of Maryland football team is one of those teams redefining success for the 2007 season. The Terrapins started out with championship expectations, which included an Atlantic Division title, a Atlantic Coast Conference championship game victory and a trip to the Orange Bowl.

Reality has a way of getting in the way of dreams ... even if it's only for a little while. Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen relied on dreams and goals to pump up the Terrapins on what has become an improbable ride to the brink of an Atlantic Coast Conference Atlantic Division title. It has pretty much been the motivation to get them where they are today. First, the goal was a sixth win and eligibility for a bowl invitation. Then it was a possible division title and a trip to the ACC championship game.

BOISE, IDAHO -- The wash of blue that engulfs Bronco Stadium on game days is supposed to be a sea of intimidation for opponents. Not for Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The first time Kaepernick set foot on the famous blue turf here, he nearly engineered one of the biggest upsets in Nevada history before falling in a wild 69-67 four overtime loss to Boise State a year ago - in his first college start. Now he's back for today's Humanitarian Bowl against Maryland, hoping that another standout performance can be the catalyst for a big 2009 that might finally get Kaepernick recognized outside the Western Athletic Conference.
