First quarter update: UNC 12, Maryland 7

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- It took one play for Maryland to surpass last week's rushing total. The Terps are moving the ball effectively, and that has opened things up in the passing game. Maryland is controlling the clock, but the defense gave up one big passing play and that was the difference. This does NOT look like the same Maryland team I saw last week in Lane Stadium.

The rain subsided for most of the first quarter, but it's coming down hard again. Davin Meggett slid right in for a first down like he was sliding into home plate.
