Tyrrell Pigrome lookdc gimpy coming off the field after repeated sacks on that last series. Ohio State defense holds and freshman kicker Joseph Petrino misses 49-yard FG attempt -- his first miss of the season. #terps
Ohio State comes right back to make it a one-score game. Drive keyed by another long pass completion by former Terps commit Dwayne Haskins, Jr. Terps might have benefited from some pressure on the play. #terps
About 20 minutes from kickoff between No. 7 @JMUFootball (7-3 overall and 5-2 in @CAAFootball ) and No. 15 @Towson_FB (7-3, 5-2) at Johnny Unitas Stadium in Towson. Winner makes a case for CAA title and spot in FCS playoffs. Loser leaves fate in selection committee's hands.
Ohio State is coming unglued. Following goal line fumble to end first half, Dwayne Haskins first pass of second half is tipped by Darnell Savage, Jr. and turned into pick-six by Ra'Von Davis to give Maryland 31-17 lead. #terps
Q1, 8:27-On @JMUFootball 's third play on its first offensive series, RB Cardon Johnson ripped off a 76-yard run up the middle for the touchdown. After the extra point, the Dukes lead @Towson_FB 7-0. That was a season-long rush for the grad student RB.
Q1, 5:01-@Towson_FB caps a 9-play, 81-yard march with QB Tom Flacco finding WR Shane Leatherbury at the front left corner of the end zone for the touchdown. The drive was aided by Flacco's 50-yard run. After the extra point, the Tigers are tied with @JMUFootball 7-7.
End of Q1-@JMUFootball 7, @Towson_FB 7. After WR Jabari Allen's career-long 68-yard reception, the Tigers march to the Duke's 10-yard line, but only get one yard on their next three downs. K Aidan O'Neill will open the second quarter lining up for a 26-yard field goal.
Q2, 11:41-QB Ben DiNucci fakes a handoff and takes it himself nine yards to the end zone. The series began at @JMUFootball 's 3-yard line and included a 40-yard run by RB Trai Sharp. After the extra point,the Dukes take a 14-10 lead over @Towson_FB .
Is the dream over: Terps get pinned back at their own five and blink -- running three unsuccessful line blasts and punting. Buckeyes get ball at Terps' 45 and meet no resistance. This game is tied, 31-31. #terps
Wow. Tyrrell Pigrome jacks up an 28-yard touchdown pass to Jeshaun Jones. Official originally ruled him out of bounds at the one yard line, but he was clearly in bounds in the end zone. Play overturned. Terps back on top 38-31. #terps
Halftime-@JMUFootball 24, @Towson_FB 10. The Dukes converted a Tom Flacco fumble into a 37-yard field goal by K Tyler Gray as time expired in the second quarter. James Madison has scored on four of six possessions in the first half, punted once, and missed on a 34-yard FGA.
Buckeyes score with 40 seconds left after holding penalty gives them first down at three yard line. Never mind that official missed flagrant holding penalty on same play that would have offset and forced third down from seven. #terps
Q3, 1:22-@JMUFootball punches in its fourth rushing touchdown of the day on a 15-yard scamper by RB Trai Sharp. After the extra point, the Dukes lead @Towson_FB , 31-10. With 15 carries for 107 yards, Sharp posts James Madison's first 100-yard run performance of the season.
Q4, 4:12-@JMUFootball QB Ben DiNucci scores on a 10-yard run. After the extra point, the Dukes take a 38-10 lead over @Towson_FB . James Madison with three players in RB Cardon Johnson (162 yards), RB Trai Sharp (107) and DiNucci (104) over 100 yards.
Q4, 1:07-QB Tom Flacco finds WR Jabari Allen for a 26-yard touchdown pass. That's the first score for @Towson_FB since two seconds into the second quarter. After the extra point, the Tigers trail @JMUFootball 38-17.
Final-@JMUFootball 38, @Towson_FB 17. The Dukes improve to 8-3 overall and 6-2 in @CAAFootball and can rest easy knowing they will play in the @NCAA_FCS playoffs. The Tigers (7-4, 5-3) are in the more uncomfortable position of waiting for tomorrow's selection show at 12:30 p.m.
With Lamar Jackson expected to start today, could this be the beginning of the end for the Flacco-Harbaugh partnership? Separating sentimentality from strategy is tough for coaches, @CharleyCasserly said, “but you have to do it.” bsun.md/2Q2Tbjk
Lamar Jackson will make his first NFL start today against the same team that Joe Flacco did. The Ravens won that 2008 game, but it was ugly. They'll put up with the same today vs. Cincinnati. bsun.md/2DuMSOU
I'm interested to see if the #Ravens use any of the two-quarterback stuff today. Theoretically, it could work better, because either Lamar Jackson or RGIII would be more of a threat outside than Flacco.
