After demolishing Howard, the Terrapins made quick work of Florida International in a 41-14 win.

Moore caught six passes for 147 yards and two touchdowns. Both touchdowns came from 40 yards or more from the line of scrimmage.
Maryland had a ton of offensive success throughout Friday’s game.
On their first offensive series, Maryland orchestrated a 12-play drive that featured a 21-yard completion from Hills to Moore. Unfortunately, the drive stalled in the red zone and the Terps had to settle for a 22-yard field goal from Adam Greene.
Greene only attempted one field goal in Maryland’s 52-13 season-opening win against Howard.
Maryland’s defense looked very impressive throughout the first quarter.
With 2:33 left in the opening quarter, quarterback Alex McGough had a third down pass deflected by cornerback Alvin Hill. Hill tipped the pass right into the waiting arms of linebacker Jermaine Carter Jr., who took it back 15 yards for the touchdown.
Carter’s pick six gave Maryland a 10-0 lead.
The Terps finally were able to find the end zone on their first drive of the second quarter.
Freshman running back Lorenzo Harrison led Maryland in rushing in the season opener. He found the end zone yet again as he weaved his way through the Golden Panthers defense for a 40-yard touchdown.
