Monroe, Whitfield lead strong defensive effort for Terps in win over NC State

Posted on 01 December 2013 by WNST Staff

RALEIGH, N.C. –

Kicking It Off: The Terps closed the regular season with a 41-21 victory over NC State to improve to 7-5, 3-5 in the ACC. NC State finishes the year 3-9 and 0-8 in the conference. With the win, Maryland ties the all-time series at 33-33-4 and improves to 16-18-1 on the road against the Wolfpack.

Dual Threat: Quarterback C.J. Brown accounted for five touchdowns with three on the ground and two through the air equaling his total against FIU (Aug. 31) to open the season. It is the most touchdowns accounted for by a Maryland player since Scott McBrien accounted for six against North Carolina on Nov. 1, 2003.

It is the sixth time this season Brown has thrown for and rushed for at least one touchdown. His three rushing touchdowns are the most in a single game for a Terrapin since D.J. Adams scored four times on the ground against East Carolina in the Military Bowl on Dec. 29, 2010.

In addition for his career, Brown has accounted for 35 touchdowns, which is tied for the sixth-highest total in school history, and his accounted for 23 touchdowns this season, which is the fourth most at Maryland.

With 138 yards rushing, Brown eclipsed the 100-yard plateau for the seventh time in his career and fourth time this season. His seven career 100-yard rushing performances is the most among active quarterbacks in the ACC and is tied with Navy’s Keenan Reynolds for the sixth most nationally among active signal callers in FBS.

The 138 yards rushing is the third-best rushing performance by a quarterback in school history and the most by a quarterback since Brown ran for a school-record 162 yards against Clemson on Oct. 15, 2011.

Air It Out: Maryland’s first touchdown of the afternoon came on a 53-yard pass from Brown to wide receiver Nigel King. For King, it is his fourth touchdown of the season and fifth of his career. The 53-yard reception is a career long for the wideout. The scoring strike was the fourth-longest scoring pass this season for the Terps.

34 in the First: The Terps put up 34 points in the first half on Saturday. It is the second-highest total of the season (40 vs. FIU, Aug. 31) and the most first-half points in an ACC game for the Terps since scoring 34 in Raleigh against NC State on Nov. 26, 2011.

Monroe and Whitfield Moving Up: Defensive lineman Andre Monroe finished with a team-high two sacks, while linebacker Marcus Whitfield added one. Monroe increased his season total to 8.5 sacks with Whitfield moving to a team-high nine. His nine sacks is the 11th-highest single-season total in school history, while Monroe’s 8.5 sacks is tied for the 12th most.

Etta-Tawo Over 100: Wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo eclipsed 100 yards receiving for the second time this season and the second time in his career. Etta-Tawo finished with game-high 101 yards receiving on four catches including a career-long 44-yard reception. Etta-Tawo finished with a career-best 109 yards receiving against Syracuse on Nov. 9 of this season. It is the sixth 100-yard receiving game this season for the Terps.

Defensive Notes: The Terps defense finished with a season-high 13 TFL led by a career-best 3.5 from linebacker Matt Robinson … Robinson had a game-high and career-high 17 tackles, eight solo … Maryland totaled five sacks led by Monroe’s two … Whitfield had one, linebacker Shawn Petty had one, and linebacker Yannick Ngakoue and Robinson each had 0.5 … defensive back William Likely tied a career high with 11 tackles.
