Maryland football pours it on Rutgers, 48-7

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — When quarterback Josh Jackson went down right before halftime against Rutgers, Maryland football’s offense easily could have fallen off course.

But on the opening play of the second half, running back Javon Leake returned the kickoff 100 yards for the touchdown, cutting across the field while turning up the right sideline with a convoy of blockers who paved the way to the endzone.

Just over two minutes later, fellow backfield mate Anthony McFarland Jr. took a handoff 80 yards to the house to give the Terps a 41-7 lead.

The Terps had an abundance of chunk plays on Saturday in their 48-7 win over the Scarlet Knights — their first Big Ten victory of the season.
