Maryland Vs. Clemson: 87-Yard Kickoff Return By Andre Ellington Gives Tigers 10-7 Lead

Well, that killed the buzz pretty quickly.

After an outstanding Maryland drive that ended with a trick-play touchdown for Danny O'Brien, Clemson took the lead right back when Andre Ellington took the Maryland kickoff back 87 yards for a touchdown. Ellington found a seam up the middle of the field, cut back to make the kicker miss and outran the Maryland defenders down the stretch for the touchdown. 

It's the first time a Maryland opponent has returned a kickoff for a touchdown since former Clemson star running back C.J. Spiller did it last year.
