Chip Trayanum and the Ohio State offense were shut out of the end zone in the first half against Maryland. A pick-6 by Josh Proctor and a field goal were the only points as the Buckeyes entered the half tied at 10-apiece.

Coming out of the break, Taulia Tagovailoa and the Maryland offense picked right back up with a clinical scoring drive. That set the table for Ohio State to respond, and Kyle McCord and company did just that.

The Buckeyes covered 76 yards in just 4 plays with McCord providing some big-time throws. The first play of the game — a target to Marvin Harrison Jr. — resulted in a pass interference call before completions of 19 yards and 37 yards to Emeka Egbuka and Julian Fleming, respectively.

After finding Fleming at the 4-yard line, Trayanum did the rest of the heavy lifting with a touchdown run to the pylon. The touchdown drive lasted just 2:01 as the Buckeyes responded in electric fashion.
