Maryland gets bowl bid

Maryland looked to continue their momentum from last week’s performance, where they almost shocked the world with an upset win over Michigan, but they came up short in the fourth quarter. This week, Maryland got off to an explosive start with touchdowns on their first two possessions of the game. Quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa, who is the younger brother of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua, produced three first-quarter touchdowns, one of which was on the ground. The rushing attack of Maryland was fairly decent; they averaged more yards per carry than Rutgers, and they averaged more yards per pass completion as well. Tagovailoa scorched the Rutgers secondary with 361 yards passing and 3 touchdowns.

Sophomore running back Roman Hemby showed great promise with a 113-yard game on the ground. The performance by Hemby was good news for Terp fans, as he should likely be returning to Maryland for his junior year. Junior receiver Tai Felton finished his season with a bang as he led all receivers with 140 yards receiving. He has improved every season as his stats go up. Maryland will not just be satisfied with their bowl game appearance, but they’ll be steadily looking to recruit big linemen and hit the portal to compete in the very physical Big 10. The conference better be aware of the Terps, as they have now gone three straight years with a winning record. All they need now is to improve in the trenches and get a few more playmakers. The future looks bright in College Park, Maryland, and with more teams coming to the conference, don’t forget to keep an eye on the Terps!
