Terps edge James Madison in OT, 38-35

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

It's another win, and the ACC will take it, but it was an embarrassing home performance nonetheless as Maryland needed overtime to beat James Madison 38-35.

JMU had 11 penalties for 104 yards. They racked up 416 yards of total offense. They proved that you don't have to be Cal -- or from a BCS conference -- to take advantage of Maryland's defensive weaknesses.

This isn't entirely a surprise, considering JMU was ranked No. 6 in the FCS preseason polls, but if Maryland is going to have any chance of making a run in the Atlantic Division, this isn't the way to do it.
