Terps lose second-quarter gains with deflating interception, trail, 31-10

The Terrapins, for a moment, looked very much back in their game against Ohio State.

After falling behind 21-3, the Maryland offense drove 75 yards in 13 plays, leading to a Wes Brown touchdown run. Down 21-10 at that point, the defense forced an Ohio State three-and-out, giving the Terps a chance at more points before halftime.

That's when things went south

After a 69-yard punt to the Maryland seven-yard line, C.J. Brown threw a horrible interception directly into the hands of Ohio State linebacker Darron Lee. J.T. Barrett found Nick Vannett for an easy touchdown flick on the next play, and Maryland fell farther behind, 31-10.

Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa lined up on different edges of the Maryland offensive line during the half. No matter where he went, he had his way. Bosa got around offensive tackles Ryan Doyle and Michael Dunn with ease on the edge and sometimes slipped between the tackles and guards. He closed the half with five tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and a sack.

The Buckeyes' offense racked up 289 total yards in the half, compared to 104 for Maryland.

The Terps will receive the kickoff to start the third quarter.
