Challenger Bracket: Maryland 28, Penn State 26

Just as they were a day ago, Penn State was in full control of their match until the final moments. In their opening round match-up in the challenger bracket, Penn State let one slip away against Maryland, who scored three times in the second half to edge the Nittany Lions, 28-26.

Penn State took a 26-7 lead before the Terps stormed back in the second half. Penn State’s defense could not keep up with Trevor Tanifum, who broke a pair of runs loose for a try to give the Terps some life. John Davis tied the game after the buzzer at 26-26, and Patrick Pacious kicked the match-winning conversion to get Maryland in to the second round.

Maryland will face the winner of the Oklahoma and Notre Dame match.
