Ohio State survives yet another trip to Maryland, 43-30

Ohio State head coach ryan day wasn’t kidding when he said this week that his team needed to be prepared for the “always dangerous” Maryland as the Buckeyes swept away College Park with a 43-30 win on Saturday afternoon.

It looked like Ohio State would head into next week’s game against third-placed Michigan after the freshman ran back Dallas Hayden‘s 13-yard touchdown rush gave the Buckeyes a 33-21 lead with 12:36 remaining in the fourth quarter.

However, the Terrapins blocked the following extra point and returned it 80 yards for a two-point conversion. They immediately went on a seven-play, 74-yard touchdown drive to reduce the lead to 33-30, with 9:49 remaining in the game.
