Terps fall to No. 2 Michigan, 59-3


Playing even a close game against the No. 2 Michigan Wolverines in the Big House was going to be a very, very tough task. It was far from a triumphant return for DJ Durkin coaching again in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines showed their power with a 59-3 victory over the Terps. Maryland’s only points game in the fourth quarter when the Wolverines were already cruising to a win and were playing with many backups.

Michigan gained 660 yards of offense, including 273 yards on the ground against Maryland. All but on of their drives resulted in some sort of points. All by two ended in a touchdown.

The Wolverines marched right down the field on a 10-play, 91-yard drive to open the game with a 34-yard touchdown from Wilton Speight to Amara Darboh. Speight ran the ball in from 10 yards out on his next drive.

Maryland had an opportunity to get on the board in the second quarter, but Adam Greene’s 27-yard attempt hit the post. Maryland didn’t have a drive extend past six plays again until their 10-play, 55-yard drive early in the fourth quarter resulted in a 37-yard field goal by Green. By that point, however, the Wolverines were ahead by 45-0.

De’Veon Smith scored quickly after Maryland’s field goal to push the Wolverines up 52-3. Backup John O’Korn hit Kakoa Crawford in the endzone on a nine-yard pass later in the game.

Lorenzo Harrison was held to only 58 yards rushing, which was a team best, with a big chunk of that coming from a 21-yard run. Caleb Rowe replaced Perry Hills in the game and thew for 203 yards, but also had two interceptions. Hills was knocked out of the game by Chase Winovich in the second quarter when his left shoulder was driven into the turf on a hit. Maryland’s 289 passing yards were the most Michigan has allowed all season. The 367 yards of total offense for the Terps were the second most put up against the Wolverines.

Maryland will return home next week but will continue on the death-row part of their schedule as they host Ohio State.

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.
