Notre Dame Vs. Maryland Score Update: Danny O'Brien TD Puts Terps On Scoreboard, Down 24-7 At Half

After Tommy Rees threw a 19-yard TD to Michael Floyd midway through the second quarter, the visiting Notre Dame Fighting Irish sported a 17-0 lead over the Maryland Terrapins. Danny O'Brien answered with a touchdown of his own three minutes later, marching the Terrapins 61 yards down field in nine plays and throwing a 13-yard touchdown to Quintin McCree. However, the Irish extended their lead right before half on Jonas Gray's second one-yard touchdown of the game and now lead 24-7 at halftime.

Notre Dame opened up the game with Gray's first touchdown on their first drive to go up 7-0. They added to the margin late in the first to 10-0 after a 52-yard David Ruffer field goal.

O'Brien has looked more like his old self tonight, but it is going to require a lot more from the Terps to come back in this one, primarily stopping Tommy Rees and Jonas Gray. The Fighting Irish have not trailed in this game.
