Maryland Football looking up after road win at Minnesota

By Jordan Johnson

The University of Maryland Football team is trending upwards after their 31-24 win on the road at the previously unbeaten Minnesota Golden Gophers.

 

Maryland was able to get the win despite having to turn to third string Quarterback Max Bortenschlager after injuries to Tyrell Pigrome and local freshman phenom Kasim Hill.

Bortenschlager, who went 18-28 with 154 yards and 2 passing touchdowns showed that despite starting the season as a third-stringer, he is still able to lead this offense and lead it well. Bortenschlager was also, helped by those around him as running back Ty Johnson carried the ball 18 times and rushed for 130 yards and scored what would be the game winning 31 yard touchdown.
