Maryland vs. Boston College: Terrapins 'folded' against Eagles

Bob DeChiara-US PRESSWIRE

The Maryland Terrapins fell short against the Eagles on the road.

The Maryland Terrapins suffered a tough 20-17 loss on Saturday afternoon against the Boston College Eagles at Alumni Stadium.

Maryland was favored going into the game but they fell flat on the road to a perceived inferior opponent. The Terrapins ultimately climbed back into the game after falling behind 10-0 in the first half only to allow a late game-winning drive.

The defense played incredibly well for most of the afternoon, allowing just eight rushing yards by the Eagles. On third down, the Terrapins were also terrific, not allowing a single third down conversation (0-for-10) until Boston College's final drive.

Over at Testudo Times, Ben Broman puts his spin on the contest:

For the second week in a row, the Maryland Terrapins turned in a fantastic second-half performance, got a big stop from their defense, and had the win in their hands, with a golden opportunity to ice it. And for the second week in a row, the offense did nothing and the defense - imperious for nearly the entire game - folded at the worst possible time.

Now, Maryland has to try and regroup before a huge affair next Saturday against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Byrd Stadium.

If the Terrapins can find a way to earn the victory, they'll be one win away from bowl eligibility.
