Maryland football beat Michigan State, 28-17, Friday night to break a two-game losing streak. The game was knotted at 14 at halftime, but Perry Hills and his reliable running backs Lorenzo Harrison and Ty Johnson came up big in the second half to put Maryland within one win of bowl eligibility.
Here’s what you missed:
- Michigan State’s Riley Bullough was ejected in the first quarter after picking up three personal fouls including this one for targeting.

4. Michigan State lined up for a field goal with one second left in the half and the score tied at 14 and then tried something tricky and... nope. Nope. It failed miserably.
5. Hills and Levern Jacobs connected for the game-sealing score with four minutes to go in the fourth quarter. The touchdown was the senior wideouts’ first of the season.
