COLLEGE FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE NATION

Maryland Wrecks Georgia Tech

November 15, 1996|Associated Press

Brian Cummings completed a career-high 21 passes and Orlando Strozier intercepted two passes in the final two minutes as Maryland jarred Georgia Tech's bowl hopes with a 13-10 victory at College Park, Md.

Maryland (5-5, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) built a 13-3 lead early in the third quarter, then held on to defeat the Yellow Jackets for only the second time in eight games since 1988.

Georgia Tech (5-4, 4-4) has lost three of four and needs to beat either Navy or Georgia in its final two games to earn enough wins to qualify for a bowl berth.

Junior running back Darnell Autry, who has helped Northwestern to unexpected success the last two years, says he will consider turning pro after the season ends.

Earlier, he said he would be back for his senior season but now appears ready to weigh his choices.

John Bobo, who last season led Arkansas State's football team to its first winning season since 1987, then asked for a larger recruiting budget and better facilities, will not return next season. . . . Canute Curtis of West Virginia, Pat Fitzgerald of Northwestern and Matt Russell of Colorado are finalists for the Dick Butkus award as college football's top linebacker.
