Minnesota's big man INT sets up tying touchdown against Maryland
Minnesota’s defense finally showed up in College Park.
Midway through the second quarter of Friday night’s game, Gophers redshirt freshman defensive lineman DeAngelo Carter made a big-time play, intercepting a pass from Terps QB Taulia Tagovailoa. His play eventually set up a Minnesota touchdown that tied the game at 21-21.
The pass had been tipped, and Carter had the awareness to haul in the football and race the other direction. Below is the clip:

That was the first stop of the game for the Minnesota defense, which had been getting torched all through the first 20 minutes of the contest. It was a huge momentum-swinging moment.
Chris Autman-Bell made a really nice catch to put Minnesota inside the Maryland 1-yard line. Mohamed Ibrahim scored a touchdown on 3rd down to tie the game up.
Because of the interception, Minnesota was able to tie the game despite trailing 21-7.
