COLLEGE PARK, Maryland (Ticker) -- Scott McBrien threw for 349 yards and four touchdowns and ran for two more scores as Maryland scored the final 45 points in a 59-21 rout of Atlantic Coast Conference rival North Carolina.

Latrez Harrison had two touchdown catches and Josh Allen added one through the air and one on the ground for Maryland (6-3, 3-2), which trailed, 21-14, before scoring 31 points in the final 7:44 of the first half.

The Terrapins tied the game on a 14-yard pass from McBrien to Harrison and took the lead for good, 24-21, on a 46-yard field goal by Nick Novak with 4:54 left in the half.

Maryland broke open the game on a 43-yard TD pass to Allen, a 67-yard strike to JoJo Walker and a five-yard run by Allen in the final 3:35 before the break.

Nine days after passing for just 47 yards before suffering a concussion in the second quarter in a loss at Georgia Tech, McBrien completed 15-of-25 passes without an interception as the Terps outgained the Tar Heels, 612-385. The last Terp to throw for four touchdowns was Scott Milanovich, who had five TD passes vs. North Carolina State on November 5, 1994.

Darian Durant went 18-of-28 for 209 yards, one touchdown and one interception for North Carolina (1-8, 0-5), which has lost three in a row to Maryland.

The Tar Heels took a 21-14 lead on a 52-yard pass from Durant to Chad Scott with 9:13 left in the second quarter. Scott also ran for a three-yard touchdown in the first quarter.
