Ratings dud? Ha!

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Who thinks ABC was among those crying after Florida State knocked off BC last weekend? I sure do.

Turns out, this game isn't a dud like most people may have been expecting. In fact, it's been downright exciting.

Most of the country isn't seeing this game, but those who do get it are probably enjoying it.

After another long completion, the Terps put three more points on the board with a field goal. But Boston College looked as if it was going to quickly respond, thanks to more Maryland penalties during key downs. The drive stalled after BC's Justin Jarvis dropped a sure touchdown on third down, and Eagles kicker Steve Aponavicius followed that up by missing a 32-yard field goal to the right.

17-14 Terps with 8:23 left in the second quarter. A lot of people thought the Byrd Stadium fans would have started to empty out by now. Still, it's too early to declare this an "Upset Alert," right?
