Yvenson Bernard couldn't be stopped, and Oregon State's defense never let Maryland get started.
Bernard rushed for 177 yards and a touchdown in his final college game, and Oregon State grinded out a 21-14 victory over Maryland on Friday night in a rain-soaked Emerald Bowl.
James Rodgers rushed for 115 yards, caught an early TD pass and recovered Bernard's fumble for the second half's only score as the Beavers (9-4) won their fourth consecutive bowl game under coach Mike Riley and snapped Ralph Friedgen's three-game postseason winning streak at Maryland.
Sean Canfield returned from a three-game absence to pass for 68 yards in relief of injured Lyle Moevao. But Canfield mostly did what Oregon State does best: Hand off to Bernard, who had 38 carries to finish as the second-leading rusher in school history, and Rodgers, the Beavers' multitalented freshman.
Chris Turner passed for 205 yards and hit Isaiah Williams and Darrius Heyward-Bey with first-quarter TD passes, but the Terrapins (6-7) stalled in the second half of their fifth loss in seven games.
The Beavers' vaunted rushing defense -- ranked second in the nation -- was just as good as Maryland feared, holding the Terrapins to 2 yards on the ground in the first three quarters.
