D.J. Moore’s ridiculous TD catch was the best thing from Maryland football’s loss to Indiana

This was awesome. And very important.

Maryland football’s offense got the ball with a chance to take the lead before halftime in Saturday’s loss to Indiana, but things came to a halt after Perry Hills was sacked to give the Terps a 3rd-and-10 at the Hoosiers’ 38-yard line.

After an offsides penalty gave Maryland some light, Hills hit D.J. Moore for this spectacular touchdown catch on the next play.

It was initially unclear whether or not Moore actually came down with it, but a review confirmed the score. Here’s just how close this was:

The catch gave Maryland a 21-16 lead going into halftime. The Terps could have clinched bowl-eligibility with a win, but the Hoosiers pulled away in the second half. Maryland will have to wait to nail down a bowl spot, and against Michigan, Ohio State and Nebraska, that’ll be hard. Luckily for the Terps, they play Rutgers at home in the last week of the season.
