Boston College vs. Maryland score: Terps take momentum in 3rd, trail 13-10

The Maryland Terps are finally on the board, cutting Boston College's 10-point halftime lead to just three points as the game moves into the fourth quarter. The Eagles opened the second half with a 61-yard drive that resulted in another Nate Freese field goal. It was an ugly second quarter for both teams, but Chase Rettig and the Eagles offense promptly moved the ball on Maryland. The drive stalled out, however, on the Terps 15-yard line and Frank Spaziani again had to settle for three.

Maryland responded on their first possession of the second half, as freshman quarterback Caleb Rowe led the offense on a 13-play drive that lasted nearly six minutes. Rowe finished the drive with a one-yard dump pass to Nigel King for the Terps first score of the day, and suddenly Maryland was right back in it.

Rowe marched the Terps back into the BC red zone on their very next possession, but this time they would turn to Brendan Magistro for a field goal to cut the deficit to three. The big play of the drive came on a 29-yard connection from Rowe to fellow freshman Stefon Diggs. The dynamic wideout is the most dangerous weapon on Maryland's offense, and he was able to shake loose for a big pick up.

With the momentum swinging to the Maryland side at the end of the third, BC will now try to hold on over the final 15 minutes to earn their first FBS win of the season.
