WEEK 8: Terrapins

Well, when we wrote that the Iowa defense was going to make things hard on Maryland, even we did not think it would be that bad!  Or good!

When the starting defense departed about midway through the 4th, the Maryland offense had just 90 net yards - total.  They would end the game with 115 total yards, a total shutdown by the Iowa defense.  

Hooker would snag the one interception that Iowa would get on the day, and Nelson (Anthony) was the recipient of the gift TD for the Iowa defense, when Maryland botched the handoff deep in their own territory, only to see their QB kick the ball into the end zone as he was hit, which allowed Nelson to fall on it, and that TD pretty much let everyone know the game was over.
