The Terps' quarterback was stellar through five games then inconsistent in four losses.
The Terps dropped their third consecutive game after starting the season 5-0.
Felton committed to the Terps one month after tearing his ACL in high school. After two seasons of sitting behind more experienced players, he's established himself as one of the team's best receivers.
The Terps suffered their first loss of the season in their first test against one of the Big Ten's elite teams.
The Terps' wide receivers — led by coach Gunter Brewer — have a unique identity.
Felton finished with seven catches for 134 yards and three touchdowns in the Terps' victory over Indiana, all career highs for the junior.
Taulia Tagovailoa scored all six of the Terps' touchdowns.
The Terps removed the full team “good-on-good” portion of its practices the last two weeks, which pits the first team offense against the first team defense.
“In our locker room, it wasn’t necessarily a celebration,” coach Michael Locksley said after the game. “We all know we didn’t play up to our standard.”
The Terps piled on 29 points after halftime while their defense held the 49ers scoreless for much of the second half.
