Maryland Vs. NC State: Wolfpack's Comeback Win Is Historic

At halftime, the Maryland Terrapins led the NC State Wolfpack 34-14. They increased their lead to 41-14 early in the third quarter. After that score hoever, the Terrapins wouldn't see the endzone the rest of the football game. The Wolfpack battled back, scoring 42 points in 21 minutes. The Terrapins defense just collapsed as the Wolfpack score six straight touchdowns, including five in the fourth quarter.

The collapse began when NC State quarterback Mike Glennon connected with Tobias Palmer for a touchdown to cut the lead to 41-21. The Terps turned the ball over five times however, which helped lead to the biggest collapse in ACC history. The game was sealed when Terps quarterback C.J. Brown was picked off by C.J. Wilson, his second interception of the day, who then returned it for a touchdown to put the Terps away, 56-41. Glennon ended the day with over 300 passing yards and 5 touchdown passes.
