Maryland entered Week 11 riding an unfathomable 4-game losing streak after previously opening the season with a 5-0 record. Previously, the Terrapins looked like a lock for the postseason, but a bowl game appearance became shaky entering November.

Now, Maryland can rest easy for a bit after coming out on top in a Week 11 thriller against Nebraska. That game came all the way down to the final play of the game with Jack Howes getting a look at a game-winning field goal.

Howes’ kick was pure, sending the Terps to a 13-10 win and a 6th win of the season. On the other sideline, Nebraska misses out on a bowl game for now with a record of 5-5.

The win gives Maryland a third straight bowl game under Mike Locksley from 2021-23. That is the first 3-year streak with a bowl game for the program since 2006-08 under Ralph Friedgen. So far, the Terps are 2-0 in bowl games under Locksley.

With Taulia Tagovailoa struggling in the game, Roman Hemby put the team on his back with a massive performance on the final drive of the game. He carried the ball 6 times for 37, including a 3rd-and-1 conversion and a 21-yard pickup to get Maryland into field goal range.

Hemby finished the game with 74 yards on 16 carries. Tagovailoa went for 283 yards while completing 27-of-40 passes with a touchdown and an interception.
