The Good

     Sam Ficken was money. He went 4 for 4 on field goals on the day (three of which he connected from 40+, including a 48 yarder.) The Penn State defense also had 6 sacks, forced two fumbles, including one that helped set up a touchdown for the Nittany Lions

      The Bad

     Christian Hackenberg threw an interception deep in the Terrapins territory. Hackenberg also had two fumbles, including one right after the Penn State defense forced a fumble near the end of the 1st half.

     The Ugly

     While the offensive line once again continued to show its flaws, outside of Sam Ficken, the special teams were a disaster. Grant Haley fumbled a kickoff return that led to Maryland converting for a touchdown on the turnover. Punter Daniel Pasquariello was horrific. His bad punting led to Maryland having great field position late in Penn State territory that allowed the Terrapins to eventually score the game winning field goal.
