Deacons pound Maryland in first half

Wake Forest quarterback Riley Skinner equalled his career high with three touchdown passes in the first half as the Deacons rolled to a 35-10 halftime lead against Maryland at BB&T Field.

The Deacons, who will move into first place in the ACC's Atlantic Division with a victory, have dominated the Terps, eating up yards in big chunks as they've moved up and down the field.

Skinner completed 14 of 17 first-half passes for 243 yards. His three incompletions included two intentionally incomplete passes and one dropped by a receiver.

Skinner became Wake Forest's all-time leader in passing yards, moving ahead of Brian Kuklick in the first quarter.
