Taulia Tagovailoa tosses picture-perfect TD as Maryland builds early lead vs. MSU
Taulia Tagovailoa isn’t looking to dig himself another early hole in Maryland’s Week 4 game vs. Michigan State. He’s already tossed a pair of early touchdowns as the Terps look to roll in the B1G opener.
After the defense produced an interception on the first drive of the game, Tagovailoa and the offense scored an early touchdown with a 9-play, 45-yard drive. It marks the first time in 3 weeks Maryland has scored first after facing 14-0 deficits in back-to-back games.
The Spartans responded with a deep drive of their own into Maryland territory. Michigan State eventually went for it on 4th down but turned it over after a 15-play drive yielded zero points.
