Bowl roundup: Terrapins get win

Associated Press
The bowl roundup …
BOISE, Idaho ó Da’Rel Scott got out of the doghouse in time to run over Nevada.
Benched for 2 1/2 quarters after breaking curfew, Scott ran for 174 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns in 14 carries and Maryland held off the Wolf Pack 42-35 in the Humanitarian Bowl on Tuesday.
Scott’s 49-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter broke a 28-all tie and his 2-yard TD gallop but the Terps up 14 points.
Scott was one of seven Terps benched by coach Ralph Friedgen for curfew violations. He didn’t get to play on the famous blue turf here until early in the third quarter and didn’t touch the ball until the 5:55 mark of the third.
Once he got going, he couldn’t be stopped.
On a second-and-7 early in the fourth quarter, he broke through the Nevada line for the 49-yard score to put the Terps (8-5) up 35-28 with 12:21 left.
He became the seventh running back in Maryland history to top 1,000 yards for the season.
Scott and the Terps were able to overcome Nevada’s potent “pistol” offense, which misfired early but came alive in the second half despite quarterback Colin Kaepernick playing with a sprained right ankle.
Kaepernick, the WAC offensive player of the year, was injured while being sacked late in the first half and moved the rest of the game with a noticeable limp.
HOLIDAY BOWL
SAN DIEGO ó Now this was a Holiday Bowl.
Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli ran through and over Oklahoma State’s defense for three touchdowns and threw for another to lead the No. 15 Ducks to a 42-31 win over the No. 13 Cowboys in a wild, record-setting Holiday Bowl.
TEXAS BOWL
HOUSTON ó Rice took out more than 50 years of postseason frustration on Western Michigan in the Texas Bowl.
Chase Clement threw three touchdown passes, ran for a score and caught a TD pass from Jarett Dillard to lead the Owls to a 38-14 win over the Broncos.
