If Albany gets home field in the playoffs, they are guaranteed final 4. But I think several teams could beat them if they have to travel. Terps are in fine position.

Only one problem: There was too much time. Far too much. The sense of joy lasted all of 31 seconds, or the time it took the Cowboys to go 75 yards, the final 32 on Ezekiel Elliott dash to the end zone that gave Dallas a 35 30 victory and sent Pittsburgh to its fourth straight loss..
