  10/08/22 - QB Aidan OConnellrSr/2023, Purdue

  Aidan O'Connell threw for 360 yards and two touchdowns, and Purdue held on for a 31-29 victory over Maryland on Saturday when a penalty wiped out the Terrapins' tying 2-point conversion with 35 seconds left. The two teams went scoreless in the second half until a wild finish that included four touchdowns in the final 7:47. Maryland appeared to have tied it when Taulia Tagovailoa found Rakim Jarrett in the corner of the end zone for a 2-point conversion in the final minute, but offensive lineman Delmar Glaze was flagged for an ineligible man downfield penalty, and Tagovailoa threw incomplete on the next attempt. Tagovailoa threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns, but Maryland couldn't produce any points off Purdue's three second-half turnovers.

The Terrapins (4-2, 1-2 Big Ten) broke a 17-all tie on Tagovailoa's 11-yard TD pass to Roman Hemby with 7:47 to play, but Cam Allen blocked the extra point. Then O'Connell, who had fumbled and thrown an interception earlier in the half, calmly guided the Boilermakers 66 yards in 10 plays and threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Payne Durham with 3:19 remaining. After taking the lead, Purdue (4-2, 2-1) forced a Maryland punt with 2:36 left, and although the Terrapins had all three timeouts left, they left Durham all alone over the middle for a 56-yard catch-and-run to the Maryland 2. That set up Devin Mockobee's 1-yard touchdown run with 1:20 left that made it 31-23. Tagovailoa and the Terps responded impressively, pulling within two on an 18-yard scoring pass to Corey Dyches, but Maryland ultimately came up one play short. O'Connell threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Mershawn Rice for a 17-10 lead. That drive was aided by an unnecessary roughness penalty on Maryland's Ahmad McCullough when Purdue would have been facing third-and-long. - Purdue/AP College Football
