Troll the boat: Maryland sets Minnesota's game-ending PAT to music from the Titanic
In what turned out to be a nail-biter of a finish, Maryland had the last laugh in Friday’s game against Minnesota.
After a hot start, the Terrapins saw themselves fall into a big hole in the second half. Fortunately, head coach Mike Locksley was able to lead a fourth-quarter comeback as quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa and the offense scored 17-unanswered points to tie the game and force overtime.
In overtime, it was Maryland who had the ball first and scored a touchdown to go up by seven. On the ensuing Minnesota possession, the Gophers punched in a touchdown and were poised to tie the game with the PAT.
Incredibly, that try sailed wide right and allowed the Terrapins to end an eight-game losing streak going back to last season. It may have been an unconventional one, but it was thrilling nonetheless.
Saturday morning, Maryland’s social media team also took a shot at trolling the Gophers. They set the game-ending PAT try to music from the Titanic, and it is pretty incredible:
