The Long Drives

I took a closer look at the two long drives that have helped Maryland barely win its last two home games. It’s quite interesting. The Terrapins have struggled in time of possession all season, ranking among the nation’s worst in that category, and then they engineer two long drives to win the N.C. State and North Carolina games. The 19-play drive that covered 73 yards in 8:43 was remarkable.

There were so many key plays on both drives.
Against North Carolina State, Chris Turner completed critical passes to Dan Gronkowski (16 yards) and Darrius Heyward-Bey (19 yards). And then there was the screen pass to Davin Meggett that went for 31 yards to set up Obi Egekeze’s field goal.

Against North Carolina, there were two third-down passes to Danny Oquendo, an acrobatic third-down catch by Ronnie Tyler and a fourth-down run by Turner, all to set up Egekeze’s field goal.
