ACC Love for the Terps-Players of the Week

OFFENSIVE BACK – Danny O'Brien, Maryland, QB, So., 6-3, 215, Kernersville, N.C.

Danny O’Brien led Maryland to a 32-24 win over Miami by going 31-of-44 for 348 yards and a touchdown, as well as running for 37 yards. It was the third 300-yard passing game of the sophomore’s career. He completed 6 of 7 passes for 72 yards and a touchdown on the game’s opening drive, and after four series, was 19-of-26 for 228 yards. O’Brien spread the ball around, hitting six receivers on the night. His 385 total yards were the third most in the FBS in the opening weekend.

CO-DEFENSIVE LINEMAN -- Joe Vellano, Maryland, DT, Jr., 6-2, 285, Rexford, N.Y.

Joe Vellano played a pivotal role in Maryland’s 32-24 win over Miami. The junior recovered two fumbles, the first of which led to a field goal and the second of which he scooped up and ran in 30 yards for a touchdown. The return for a touchdown came with 0:47 left in the second quarter, giving Maryland a 20-14 lead and the momentum heading into halftime. Vellano also had two tackles on the evening while manning the interior of the line.

DEFENSIVE BACK -- Cameron Chism, Maryland, CB, Sr., 5-10, 190, Washington, D.C.

Cameron Chism made a number of big plays for Maryland, none bigger than intercepting Miami quarterback Stephen Morris on fourth-and-3 and returning it 54 yards for a touchdown with under a minute to play. The score increased Maryland’s lead from a single point to 32-24. Chism also had a hand in another defensive score when he forced a fumble that Joe Vellano scooped up and ran in 30 yards for a TD just before halftime. The senior finished the game with six tackles, including one tackle for loss.
