Didn’t see this sort of thing coming.

Maryland used three defensive stands in the final six minutes to turn back Clemson, which clearly had some sort of an allergy to the Terrapins’ 30 yard line in the fourth quarter.


The Terps needed a play that could turn an entire season. They might have gotten it from Demetrius Hartsfield, who preserved a 24-21 victory with a sack and forced fumble of Kyle Parker in the final 30 seconds.

More to come from postgame, but Maryland (2-3, 1-0 ACC) oddly enough finds itself atop the Atlantic Division a week into October after a thoroughly bizarre game.
