Timeouts cost Terps in 29-26 loss

Maryland loses their final ACC home game.


Marching band spells out ACC, B1G

It's halftime of Maryland's last ACC home game, and they certainly know it.

Troll hard, MSOM. Troll hard.


Game tied 10-10 at halftime

The Eagles took advantage of a blocked punt, scoring a touchdown with Andre Williams to tie the game up as we head into halftime.

Boston College started the quarter with the ball near midfield on third-and-three, but a false start penalty moved them back. Yannick Ngakoue and Marcus Whitfield got through on the next play and sacked Chase Rettig, forcing the Eagles to punt.

Maryland went three-and-out on their next drive, but Nate Renfro's punt was blocked, giving the Eagles the ball at the seven. Andre Williams scored on the next play, tying the game at 10-10.

The Terps drove down the field on their next drive, as C.J. Brown completed three of his first four passes on the drive for 34 yards, with Brandon Ross chipping in with 19 yards on his first four rushes of the drive. Two straight flags cancelled out completions (including one to Nigel King in the end zone), leaving the Terps with first-and-30 in their own territory. On third-and-18, C.J. Brown ran out of the pocket, brought a defender forward, and found Levern Jacobs for a 33-yard gain, but it was called back due to an illegal forward pass. Maryland punted the ball away, giving the Eagles the ball with about six-and-a-half minutes left.

Chase Rettig threw a ball over the middle with Marcus Whitfield pursuing, and it fell right into the hands of Sean Davis. No Boston College receiver was anywhere near the ball when it was picked off. Maryland was unable to capitalize and punted the ball away, but were able to land it at the two-yard line. The Terps forced a three-and-out, getting the ball back at BC's 47-yard line with three minutes to go. Maryland was forced to punt it away again, this time resulting in a questionable touchback.


Terps lead 10-3 after one

A huge botched snap by Boston College has proved to be the difference so far, as the Terps have taken a 10-3 lead into the second quarter thanks to Albert Reid's one-yard touchdown run.

Boston College got the ball to start the game, and after getting stuffed for a three-yard gain, Andre Williams took the ball down the left side for 31 yards and the first down. On the next play, he ran 20 yards down the right side, throwing Will Likely to the ground in the process. Williams was stuffed on third-and-three from the four. Nate Freese's 22-yard field goal was good, giving the Eagles a 3-0 lead.

Maryland went three-and-out on the next drive on three straight passing plays -- one resulted in a three-yard completion to Levern Jacobs, while the other two fell incomplete (one on a poor throw, one due to terrible pass blocking), and the Terps punted the ball away.

Boston College went three-and-out on their next drive, as the Terps stuffed Williams twice before pressuring Chase Rettig and forcing him to throw it out of bounds. On their first play of the ensuing drive, Maryland got their first first down of the game, as Brown found Amba Etta-Tawo on a screen pass for a 12-yard gain. After an incomplete pass, Brown found Nigel King on a short pass for a ten-yard gain and another first down.

After six straight passes to start the game, Maryland finally turned to the ground game, giving the ball to Brandon Ross twice and setting up third-and-one. The ball was handed off to Ross again, but the running back fell down, forcing fourth-and-five and a 43-yard field goal attempt for Brad Craddock. The Aussie nailed it, tying the game at 3-3.

The two teams traded three-and-outs, and on third-and long, Chase Rettig set up in the shotgun with five receivers wide. The snap missed him by a wide margin, and senior Marcus Whitfield recovered at the opposing one-yard line. Albert Reid punched it in on the next play, giving the Terps a 10-3 lead.
