Penn State Shuts Out Maryland 30-0

Nick Singleton ran for 122 yards and two touchdowns, and Penn State's defense kept Maryland out of the end zone in a 30-0 win Saturday, the AP reports. The Nittany Lions (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) beat the Terps for the seventh time in nine games since Maryland joined the Big Ten in 2014. Like the overall series, this one was all Nittany Lions thanks to Penn State's pass rush. Soggy conditions couldn't slow Penn State's front seven. Neither could Maryland's reeling offensive line. Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa was hit hard as he threw incomplete on the Terps' first play from scrimmage—an omen of things to come from a Nittany Lion defense that notched seven sacks, seven QB hurries, forced nine punts and three turnovers on down. The Nittany Lions did most of their damage early. They sacked Tagovailoa five times and held Maryland to just 27 total yards before halftime. By that point, Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford had put the game out of reach when he threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Brenton Strange just 6:08 in. Meanwhile, Singleton lapped Maryland's defense on a pair of fourth-and-inches runs that went for 45- and 27-yard touchdowns. Pinegar added field goals from 50 and 46 yards to put Penn State up 27-0 at halftime. Pinegar added a 21-yarder midway through the third. Roman Hemby led the Terps with 68 rushing yards on 13 carries.
