Terps fall to Boston College in Quick Lane Bowl

Ty Johnson has 159 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries.

Ty Johnson averaged 10.6 yards per carry as he rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns on 15 attempts, but four turnovers cost the Maryland Terrapins against their former ACC rival Boston College. The Terps fell to the Eagles 36-30 in the Quick Lane Bowl on Monday in Detroit. Senior quarterback Perry Hills lost three fumbles and threw an interception in the game.

After being shutout in the first quarter the Terps seemed to hit their stride with two touchdown before halftime. Johnson busts off a 62-yard touchdown run and then a 30-yard touchdown run just three minutes apart from each other. That put Maryland in a great position to come back as they cut their deficit to 10 with 23-13.

On top of that, Maryland forced Boston College into a three-and-out, but then Hills threw an interception and Maryland went three-and-out on their next possession. Just two plays after the punt, Eagles quarterback Patrick Towles completed a 49-yard touchdown pass to Michael Walker that gave Boston College 16-point lead at halftime.

Out of the break, things still looked up for Maryland after forcing another three-and-out, but on their first play on their ensuing possession Hills mishandled the ball. Kevin Kavalec jumped on the ball in the endzone and gave the Eagles their largest lead of the game at 36-13.

Maryland was able to make up for the lost fumble by leading Maryland to touchdown on their next two possessions. It took only four total plays to score the two touchdowns too. Teldrick Morgan caught a 63-yard touchdown pass early in the third quarter. Then Levern Jacobs caught a long pass, rolled off a defender and ran the rest of the way for a 52-yard score to make it a 36-27 game.

Considering Maryland shut Boston College out the rest of the game, forcing three punts, an interception, a fumble and having the Eagles miss a field goal, one would have had to imagined the Terps came back for a remarkable victory. However, their offense stalled just as bad as Boston College’s did. Maryland punted the ball twice, turned it over on downs twice and fumbled the ball away. They only scored three points in the third quarter after Mary Azubuike Ukandu recovered a fumble on the five yard line. Disappointingly, Maryland had to settle for the 23-yard field goal after Hills threw three-straight incomplete passes.

Maryland finished the season with a 6-7 record.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
