For those of you who were unable to watch Saturday's game, or for those of you who just want to relive the glory of Maryland's blowout opening win, here is a highlights video, via UMTerps.

Of note:

  • You can now see exactly how close each of Brad Craddock's attempts were!
  • An extra-close look at the forced fumble on the ensuing kick-off. Abner Logan had the grab from behind, but Alex Twine absolutely leveled the returner to force out the ball.
  • I could watch that pitch to Stefon Diggs over and over again. C.J. Brown was literally falling to the ground as it happened.
  • In other news, Brown is just way faster than FIU's defense. And stronger. Just generally better.
  • That one-handed Diggs grab.
  • I still have no idea how Diggs managed to keep his knees off the ground on that TD pass.
  • You can see how the option pitch paid off later - the defensive back couldn't commit to Brown on that last TD run, allowing him to score.
