Officials in the Michigan vs. Maryland game had some interesting calls late in the fourth quarter of the hard-fought Week 12 contest. One directly put points on the board for Michigan and took the ball away from the Terrapins.

Backed up against his own goal line, Taulia Tagovailoa was called for intentional grounding in the end zone. By rule, that play is a safety with Michigan getting 2 points and possession late in the fourth quarter.

The safety made it 31-24 Michigan, and the Wolverines were able to roll the clock out to secure the win. Here is how the play looked:
