Penn State outlasts Maryland 31-30

PSR Logo
Christian Hackenberg threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns as Penn State kept Maryland winless in the Big Ten with a 31-30 win in Baltimore on Saturday, in the Terps first game after firing head coach Randy Edsall.

Penn State (6-2, 3-1 Big Ten) improved to 36-2-1 against the Terps, but Maryland's determined effort before a spirted crowd of 68,948 could help turn this into a regional rivalry.

Maryland quarterbak Perry Hills ran for 124 yards and completed 19 of 28 passes for 225 yards. His final interception came on a deflected pass with 1:15 remaining.

With Hills leading the way, Maryland amassed 241 yards on the ground.

Penn State went up 31-27 with 13:39 left when Hackenberg tossed a 27-yard touchdown pass to Geno Lewis.

Maryland cut the gap with a field goal, and then recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff. But Hills fumbled it back as he was hit while throwing.

The Terrapins got the ball following a missed field goal try. Locksley opted to go for it on fourth-and-2 from the Maryland 36, and Hills was intercepted by Trevor Williams with 7:51 to go.

That wouldn't be the last turnover for the Terrapins, who wore throwback uniforms patterned after the 1961 team. That was the year in which Maryland earned its lone win over the Nittany Lions at home.

The back-and-forth duel extended into the next drive, when Hills directed an 88-yard march that ended with a 10-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Lane, making it 27-24.
