Chad Ryland had a special game against Michigan even though Maryland came up short in the end. He did something that no one in program history has ever done.

Ryland nailed a pair of 52 and 53-yard field goals in the first half. Ryland made program history as the first Maryland kicker to hit two field goals from 50 yards or more in a game.

Maryland ended up losing to Michigan 34-27. The score was closer than the game was in reality, as the Terps scored with 45 seconds to go in the game with backup QB Billy Edwards Jr. on the field.

At the end of the day, Maryland is still in contention for the division and is well on its way to a bowl game. The Terps are 3-1 and are not out of the conversation for the B1G East title just yet.

Ryland’s kicking ability is always nice to have. He has shown that he is guaranteed points from 50-55 yards, which isn’t easy to do for every kicker.

Maryland’s special teams is lucky to have a kicker like Ryland on the roster.
