Maryland beats Minnesota on Ty Johnson’s last-minute TD

Maryland rebounded from a 38-10 listless loss to UCF with a 31-24 win at Minnesota on Friday, moving the Terps to 3-1 and giving P.J. Fleck his first loss as Minnesota’s head coach.

This 34-yard Ty Johnson run secured the win for Maryland with just over a minute left. Johnson finished with 130 yards on 18 carries, but none mattered more than these right here:

Maryland looked much better a week after losing its second quarterback for the season.

Max Bortenschlager was 18-for-28 for 154 yards through the air, and looked noticeably more comfortable after he was overmatched against UCF. Maryland got its whole offense working again after not being able to move the ball last week, and the Terps’ defense kept them in the game.

P.J. Fleck has his first loss as Minnesota’s head coach.

Minnesota hadn’t played world beaters in its first three games, but his Gophers were looking good headed into conference play. Fleck’s team battled Maryland blow-for blow, but the Terps were able to eke out one last score when it mattered, and Minnesota QB Conor Rhoda threw an interception to JC Jackson in the final minute to silence any hopes the Gophers had of winning this one.
