WOUNDED BUT WALKING

Of the injured Clemson players, only wide receiver Jackie Robinson was not expected to play Saturday.


Robinson dressed, but his pulled groin was expected to keep him out of action. Tight ends Ben Hall (sprained shoulder) and Morgan Woodward (ribs) both saw action in the first half.


SECOND WIND

Freshman linebacker LeRoy Hill was down on the field for several minutes Saturday night following a first-half collision with Rodney Feaster while breaking up a pass.


Fortunately, Hill just had his breath knocked out and later returned.


NEW DOOMSDAY

With his fourth tackle for loss early in the third quarter Saturday, Maryland linebacker E.J. Henderson surpassed former Terp Randy White for the single-season record with 25.


White set the original record in 1974.


HIGH SCORERS

Maryland's 24th point of the evening gave the Terrapins 354 on the season, setting a new school record.


The previous mark of 353 was held jointly by the 1951 and 1982 Maryland teams.


<>SEA OF RED

Saturday night's attendance of 54,462 was the fourth largest in the history of Byrd Stadium.


The largest crowd - 58,973- came against Penn State in 1975, followed by 54,714 vs. West Virginia in 1983 and 54,412 against Alabama in 1974.


GOING BOWLING?

With Maryland still in contention for the Atlantic Coast Conference title, officials from the Orange Bowl were on hand Saturday night scouting the game.


Other bowls in attendance included the Gator, Peach and Tangerine.


CROWD PLEASER

Already at a fever pitch, the Maryland crowd took it up another level during pregame when North Carolina State's 34-28 upset of Florida State was announced.


The Seminoles' loss kept alive Maryland's hopes of winning the ACC outright, pending the outcome of Saturday night's game with Clemson. The win over the Tigers Saturday clinched at least a share of the league title.


BOUNCING BACK
..
Clemson head coach Tommy Bowden entered Saturday's game with an 11-2 record the week after a loss, including 8-1 with the Tigers.


Earlier this season Clemson followed losses Virginia and North Carolina with wins at Georgia Tech and Wake Forest, respectively.
