Maryland just won’t go away.
For most of the game, Boston College has been dominant. Really, there’s only been a few plays that has kept the Terrapins within striking distance in the Quick Lane Bowl. The latest was a 63-yard pass from Perry Hills to Teldrick Morgan:

On the following offensive possession, Hills went deep again, finding Levern Jacobs for a 52-yard TD strike:
All of this happened after Boston College took a 36-13 lead early in the third quarter after Hills fumbled a handoff to Ty Johnson that was recovered by the Eagles in the end zone.
Maryland’s other two scores in the first half came from big plays, as well. Ty Johnson scored on runs from 62 and 30 yards out to keep the Terrapins alive in Detroit.
Bowl mania is a crazy time of year and this game has been no exception. Maybe Maryland’s offense has discovered a weakness in Boston College’s stingy defense.
