The Buckeyes front seven wreaked havoc on the Terps offense. Maryland quarterbacks completed just three passes and were sacked five times during the game.
If Moore and his fellow receivers are able to successfully get open early in the game, it should open up holes for the Terps explosive ground game to attack.
Now, rather than being viewed as a liability, the unit acts as the “‘tip of the spear’ for the Maryland offense.”
Although Maryland left Austin with a win Saturday evening, they lost both Tyrrell Pigrome and Jesse Aniebonam to injury, head coach DJ Durkin announced.
Pigrome used to rush through reads, but this season his teammates see a different, more confident player. Now, he takes the time to go through his reads before throwing a pass or making a play, D.J. Moore said.
Backing up Pigrome is true freshman Kasim Hill, who beat out sophomore Max Bortenschlager and UNC transfer Caleb Henderson.
Markquese Bell and Alex Woods will both be suspended and unable to practice for violating the athletic department code-of-conduct.
