Terps strike first: Taulia Tagovailoa hits Jake Funk for Maryland's first TD of 2020 season
Maryland has finally found the end zone.
On Friday night, the Terrapins started the game by receiving the opening kickoff and turned the first possession of the contest against Minnesota into the squad’s first touchdown of the year. Better late than never, right?
Quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa hit running back Jake Funk for an 8-yard pass that resulted in the score, giving the Terps an early 7-0 advantage. It capped an 11-play, 82-yard drive to start the contest.
