Six weeks ago, Maryland and quarterback C.J. Brown were flying high.

The Terrapins were 4-0, and even climbed into the national ranking at No. 25 following a 37-0 victory over West Virginia in late September.

At that point, Brown -- who missed all of last year with a torn ACL -- was one of the biggest stories in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He threw seven touchdown passes in those four games and ran for six scores.

Since then, things have gone downhill for Brown and Maryland. As they prepare to face Virginia Tech on Saturday, the Terrapins have dropped three in a row and four of five.

Brown says, "It's definitely on me. I've got to be able to lead the team down the field and make plays."
