Maryland beat Minnesota on Friday night at Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium in College Park, Md. in the most “college football” way possible.
The Terrapins prevailed 45-44 in overtime after the Golden Gophers missed an extra point that would have tied the game and sent it to a second OT.
Minnesota kicker Brock Walker, who was 1-for-1 on field goals and 5-for-5 on extra points, pushed his sixth extra-point try wide to the right.

The game was crazy. Maryland went up 21-7. Then Minnesota scored the next 31 points straight to go up 38-21. Then Maryland rallied with a 17-0 comeback in the fourth quarter to tie the game and send it to OT, where they won on the missed extra point.
What a game.
Minnesota is now 0-2, while Maryland is 1-1.
