No. 5 Ty Johnson’s 66-yard touchdown against Indiana
Indiana was certainly one of those toss-up games that Maryland had the talent to win this season.
After the Hoosiers raced out to a 13-0 lead in the opening quarter, sophomore running back Ty Johnson responded with one of his most electric plays of the season. Johnson took a handoff from quarterback Perry Hills out of the shotgun and scampered down the sideline 66 yards.
Johnson even shed an attempted tackle by defensive back Jonathan Crawford. Crawford had Johnson wrapped up, but Johnson powered through the contact and took it to the end zone.
This was one of many long runs by Johnson, who averaged 8.9 yards-per-carry this season. He also had a 76-yard run against Purdue.
Johnson came on strong at the end of the 2015 season with a two-touchdown performance against Rutgers in the season finale. He ended up being one of the most lethal backs in the Big Ten.
This run really kept Maryland hanging around in a game that could’ve definitely gotten out of hand early on.
