COLLEGE PARK – Maryland’s 28-17 victory over Michigan State Saturday marked a milestone win for the football program.

Not since 1950 had a Maryland football team beaten a Michigan State squad before Saturday’s masterpiece in front of 41,235 spectators at Maryland Stadium.

I was very pleased with how our guys approached the game. We had really emphasized having fun and having enthusiasm with what we’re doing. And they did that. I think our players responded to having Perry back playing. There was a noticeable spark in the offense.”
