Tech's Late Rally Comes Up Short Against Maryland

By  | 

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Lance Ball ran for three touchdowns,
and Maryland held on to beat Georgia Tech 28-26 this afternoon.
Chris Turner had a solid game in his first career start,
throwing for 255 yards and his first career touchdown.
Georgia Tech had a chance to take the lead with less than a
minute remaining, but Travis Bell sent a 52-yard field goal attempt
wide right. The kick would have been much shorter if not for a
holding penalty on the previous play.
Maryland had leads of 21-3 and 28-17 but allowed Georgia Tech to
get within two midway through the fourth quarter. A missed
two-point conversion prevented the Yellow Jackets from tying it.
Maryland improved to 4-2 overall and 1-1 in the Atlantic Coast
Conference. Georgia Tech is 3-3 and 1-3 in ACC play.
