Price's TD hat trick leads Wake past Terps, 34-10

AP Sports Writer

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) -- Quarterback Tanner Price had
touchdowns rushing, receiving and passing in Wake Forest's 34-10
victory over Maryland on Saturday.

Price was 26 of 36 through the air for 231 yards, scored on a
4-yard run and caught a 4-yard TD pass from receiver Michael
Campanaro - the trick-play master's fourth career touchdown

Price hit Campanaro with a 10-yard touchdown pass to become the
first player in school history and the fourth Bowl Subdivision
player this season to hit the touchdown trifecta. He joined
Clemson's C.J. Spiller as the only ACC players since 2000 to do

Josh Harris' 1-yard touchdown run on the opening series put the
Demon Deacons (4-3, 2-2) on their way to their fourth straight
home victory over the Terrapins (5-2, 1-2).

Backup Caleb Rowe threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to Levern
Jacobs to briefly pull Maryland to 24-10 midway through the
third quarter.

Price restored Wake Forest's three-touchdown lead with his
scoring pass on the next possession, and Chad Hedlund put the
Demon Deacons up by 24 with a 38-yard field goal with 7:46 to

Starter C.J. Brown was 15 of 24 for 137 yards in his return from
a concussion for Maryland. But he was constantly harassed by
nose tackle Nikita Whitlock, threw two interceptions in the
second quarter that led directly to Price's first two touchdowns
and was replaced by Rowe midway through the third.

Rowe finished 15 of 27 for 207 yards. Maryland outgained Wake
Forest 383-307 but finished with three turnovers.

In the final moments, the Big Ten-bound Terrapins were serenaded
by chants of "A-C-C" by the Wake Forest crowd.

The Demon Deacons scored on four of their six possessions in the
first half and turned those turnovers into a 24-3 halftime lead.

Merrill Noel's 49-yard interception return to the Maryland 18
set up Price's touchdown run that made it 17-3 with 5:21 before
the break.

A.J. Marshall picked off Brown on Maryland's next possession,
and that's when coach Jim Grobe reached into his bag of tricks.
Four plays after Campanaro took a lateral from Price and threw a
24-yard pass to Tyree Harris, the Demon Deacons were at it

Backup running back Dominique Gibson took a direct snap and
flipped the ball to Campanaro, who rolled left and flipped a
strike to Price in the end zone with 1:21 before the break.

Campanaro, a native of Clarksville, Md., caught 11 passes to
give him 217 career receptions - breaking Desmond Clark's school
record of 216. Campanaro finished with 122 yards receiving and
was 2 of 2 passing for 29 yards in his final game against his
home-state school.

He entered as the conference's leader in receptions and
receiving yardage per game, and improved his unofficial career
passer rating to 454.5.

In falling to 1-9 in ACC road games under third-year coach Randy
Edsall, Maryland lost starting receiver Deon Long to an apparent
lower right leg injury early in the second quarter and top
receiver Stefon Diggs to a lower leg injury early in the fourth
