DURHAM, N.C. -- Joel Statham threw four touchdown passes to offset a host of mistakes yesterday, and No. 23 Maryland piled up 685 yards in total offense to beat winless Duke, 55-21.
For the second straight game, Statham was intercepted three times, and he also was charged with three fumbles. That gives him seven interceptions and eight fumbles in four games for the Terrapins (3-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who bounced back from an overtime loss to West Virginia last week.
Vernon Davis caught three of the TD passes and Rich Parson had the other as Maryland won its fifth straight over the Blue Devils (0-4, 0-2). Statham finished 22 for 37 for 362 yards, and the Terrapins added 277 on the ground.
