Maryland had a good response to Andre Ellington's 87-yard kickoff return. They just couldn't finish that response off with any points.
The Terps marched up the field to inside the Tigers' 10-yard line, but Danny O'Brien was sacked on third and one, forcing a field goal attempt. Then, converted punter Travis Baltz pushed the 33-yarder well right, missing badly and preventing the Terps a chance to tie the score.
Clemson will now get the ball on the Maryland 23-yard line.
