Josh Proctor and the Ohio State defense have already been on the field for a number of plays against Maryland. Fortunately, Proctor stepped up with a game-changing play in the second quarter.

With the Terps facing a 3rd-and-5 from well within their own territory, Proctor jumped a route and picked off Taulia Tagovailoa. After grabbing the interception, Proctor made some nifty moves and outran Maryland’s offense for the pick-6.

Proctor’s score provides the first points for Ohio State so far as the Buckeyes still trail 10-7 against Maryland. With the Buckeye offense struggling and bottled up so far, the defense under Jim Knowles will need to provide more impact plays in this one.
