But the most noteworthy stat so far for Tagovailoa is that along with those numbers, he has yet to throw for an interception.
It’s a welcome sight in College Park, after the Alabama transfer had a turbulent run in 2020, while showing signs of greatness, also threw for seven interceptions over the four games he saw action. His decision making skills were a concern, and the success so far this season bodes well for the future of the Terps hopes of becoming a force to be reckoned with in the B1G.
