College Park, MD–

Entering the day as 26-point underdog in the Vegas lines, apparently no one was actually giving the Maryland Terps any chance to win the game today against the 10-0 No. 2 ranked Buckeyes… well the final score showed the complete opposite.

While the Buckeyes trailed 13-10 at halftime, they used a 17-0 third quarter run to pull ahead and a late fourth-quarter surge — despite a thorough effort by the Terrapins — to remain undefeated. Let’s just say the Terps were quite a different team in the second half.

Maryland had one final drive to try and take the lead with less than a minute remaining but allowed a pair of sacks with Tagovailoa stripped on the latter for a decisive fumble return for a touchdown.

The final play was one of the wildest series of downs occurring in the second half of the game, which also featured a blocked extra point by the Terps that was run back for a safety keeping the in the game at 33-30.

“I am proud of the effort these guys put on the field tonight,” said Terps Head Coach Mike Locksley. You saw the numbers before the game started and no one gave us a chance tonight.”

“There were a couple of calls that could have gone our way and I let the officials know that tonight,” said Locksley.

There was an issue with coaching discipline outside of the choice of words to the ref, as the Terps had no timeouts for the final three minutes.

Ohio State moves to 11-0, 8-0 in the Big Ten, and can now turn the page to focus on archrival Michigan.
