LINCOLN, Neb. -- Ryker Fyfes second career start sure went a lot better than his first.Fyfe passed for 220 yards and a touchdown while filling in for injured starter Tommy Armstrong Jr., leading No. 18 Nebraska to a 28-7 win over Maryland on Saturday.The Cornhuskers (9-2, 6-2 Big Ten; No. 19 AP) stayed alive in the West Division. They must win at Iowa on Friday and Wisconsin must lose to Minnesota on Saturday for Nebraska to go to the conference championship game.Fyfe, who walked on in 2012 and earned a scholarship two years ago, created a lifetime memory on senior day in what will be his only start at Memorial Stadium. He said he was motivated by the opportunity to redeem himself for his five-turnover performance in his previous start, a 55-45 loss at Purdue last year.I put a lot of pressure on myself, he said. You want to come out and play well and get a win and not lose to teams like Purdue. That was a tough one last year. For sure I came out playing hard.Terrell Newby ran for a career-high three touchdowns and Nebraska limited the Terrapins to 207 yards, including 11 rushing. Maryland (5-6, 2-6) lost for the sixth time in seven games and has been outscored 149-13 over three weeks.Fyfe prevailed over Max Bortenschlager in a battle of backup quarterbacks.Armstrong injured his hamstring against Minnesota and was not in uniform Saturday. Perry Hills was dressed but didnt play for the Terrapins because of shoulder problems.Fyfe was effective if not always pretty. He was 24 of 37, often dropping back deep and angling toward the sideline before throwing downfield, sometimes sidearm, sometimes off his back foot. He also hurt the Terps with a couple runs.Ive always had a special spot for Ryker, Nebraska coach Mike Riley said. Hes a guy who could have gone to a smaller school and thrown for 3,000 yards one year. He stuck it out here with teammates and friends and won a big game for us to get our ninth win.Bortenschlager, a freshman who entered the game having thrown four passes in one previous appearance, was 14 of 29 for 191 yards. He was sacked five times.Throughout the year, weve been able to run the ball in just about every game, Terps coach DJ Durkin said. We werent able to do that today. That affected Max as well. If you cant run the ball, thats hard on any quarterback.Maryland ended an 11-quarter stretch with no touchdowns when D.J. Moore caught a screen pass and took it 92 yards to the end zone early in the fourth quarter.I would say thats one of the best touchdowns Ive had, Moore said.THE TAKEAWAYMaryland: The Terrapins missed Hills but werent likely to win this game even if he played. The week off might help him get ready for a winnable home game against Rutgers.Nebraska: Fyfe was good in the first half and OK in the second against an overmatched opponent. The Huskers definitely want Armstrong ready for Iowa next week.POLL IMPLICATIONSNebraska could move up in the Top 25 depending on what teams ahead of it do, but a win over the scuffling Terps doesnt merit a promotion on its own.KEY NUMBERSMaryland was the first Nebraska opponent held scoreless in the first half. The Terps have been outscored 101-3 in the first halves over three games. ... Jordan Westerkamp had a season-high eight catches for 85 yards and has caught at least one pass in 35 straight games. ... Newby, playing his 50th consecutive game, ran 22 times for 98 yards and scored from 8, 5 and 1 yard. ... The Huskers have gone two straight games without a turnover for the first time since 2003.SPECIAL SENIOR DAYNebraska honored Sam Foltz during its senior day ceremony. Each senior greeted and hugged Foltzs parents before placing a red rose on the 27-yard line. No. 27 was Foltzs uniform number.Foltz, who would have been the Huskers senior punter , and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler were killed in a single-car accident in Wisconsin in July. Both were in Wisconsin to work at a kicking camp.We miss Sam like crazy and we love him so much, and hes still out there with us, Westerkamp said.UP NEXTMaryland: The Terrapins will try to break their four-game losing streak and achieve bowl eligibility when they host the Scarlet Knights on Saturday.Nebraska: The Huskers visit Iowa on Friday hoping to avenge last years loss to the Hawkeyes in Lincoln.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Gary Kubiak didnt flinch when Trevor Siemian threw two interceptions in his first NFL start, and neither did the no-longer-unknown quarterback.Siemian coolly led the Denver Broncos back from a late 10-point deficit for a 21-20 win over the Carolina Panthers in his first NFL start Thursday night.He did so by engineering the kind of fourth-quarter comeback that made John Elway and Peyton Manning icons in this quarterback-crazed town.Hes going to make mistakes. Hes a young kid, but man, he played with a lot of poise, Kubiak said. Hes going to watch film and hes going to get so much better.After speaking with Manning a day earlier -- mostly about the retirees latest funny commercials -- Siemian became the first QB to start for a Super Bowl champion without ever having thrown a pass as a pro.That changed on the games first snap, when he zipped an 11-yarder to Demaryius Thomas, then threw four more passes before handing off to C.J. Anderson.It wasnt so much to build confidence as to show confidence, Kubiak said Friday, suggesting the only way a young QB gets better is for his coach to show faith in him.Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Siemian was poised because Carolinas fierce front seven didnt pressure him enough.The thing that we didnt do and needed to do better, we should have shut the run down and forced the guy to win the game. We didnt, Rivera said. They ran the ball well and their offensive line did a nice job, and thats on us.Anderson helped keep that pressure off Siemian by running for 92 yards on 20 carries and catching four passes for 48 yards.The Panthers led the league with 39 takeaways last year and they had two on Denvers first two drives, including an interception by linebacker Thomas Davis. Siemians second pick came in the third quarter when cornerback Ben Benwilkere snared a high pass intended for Emmanuel Sanders at the Panthers 10.We missed a blitz pickup or else he throws a touchdown to Emmanuel, Anderson said.Kubiiak never sensed Siemian getting flustered, though.ddddddddddddHe really wasnt. Actually the second interception, it really wasnt his fault. Now, he has to throw the ball away (but) we should have picked it up, Kubiak said of the safety blitz that forced the turnover. He should have been able to step and throw. We didnt get that done. Its a team game. Obviously you have to protect the ball down there, but we sure as hell could have helped him.On the first play of the fourth quarter, Anderson took a screen pass 25 yards for the score that cut Carolinas lead to 17-14. Chris Harris Jr. intercepted Cam Newton two plays later and Anderson took it in from the 1.Kubiak said he felt confident going in that Siemian wouldnt shrink in the magnitude of the moment.This kid is really exceptional, Kubiak said. I had a lot of confidence when I left the meeting (Wednesday) night.Kubiak said Siemians teammates have to play better, but Siemian said its those players who keep him calm.Im just super confident in the group of guys we have offensively, he said. There are a lot of vets and a lot of great leadership in that group that I can lean on.Theyre rapidly realizing they can lean on him, too.Game notes Kubiak said that while he was proud of his teams resiliency he wasnt happy about their recklessness: We made too many mistakes. I will not let up on them. Kubiak also disagreed with the costly illegal use of the hands penalty that Harris was flagged for on a fourth-and-21 incompletion to Kelvin Benjamin at the Panthers 29 that kept alive Carolinas final drive. I think the league got it wrong, Kubiak said. I thought it should have been called the other way.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton ' ' '
