Jonas Gary ran for a career-high 136 yards and two touchdowns, and Notre Dame made itself right at home against skidding Maryland in a 45-21 victory Saturday night.
Tommy Rees completed 30 of 38 passes for 296 yards and two scores for the Fighting Irish (7-3), who have won three straight and seven of eight. Rees went 14 for 15 for 142 yards after halftime.
Notre Dame has made a habit of playing one "home" game a year at a neutral site. Although this one was held at a stadium only 12 miles from the Maryland campus, both end zones read NOTRE DAME and most fans in the crowd of 70,251 at FedEx Field were pulling for the Irish.
Maryland (2-8) dropped its sixth straight and also lost starting quarterback Danny O'Brien, who hurt his left arm.
