College Park, MD–
Sometimes you see history made and sometimes you see history made in ways you would like to forget. That would be exactly what Howard would like to do after the Terps opened their 2019 season with a 79-0 blasting of the Bison.
This game was really all but over after the first quarter, yes you read that one right, the first quarter. Josh Jackson showed he wasn’t afraid to put the ball down the field with some precision, something the Terps have been missing for the better half of two seasons.
Jackson put things together with his numbers before he exited the game with 15 of 22 passing attempts for 245 yards. This is another thing that the Terps have missed the pass two seasons.
By the end of the first half, the Terps had a 56-0 lead. Mike Locksley’s team continued to pour on the pressure, eventually taking a 79-0 victory over the Bison — the program’s first shutout since 2013.
“The touchdowns are cool and everything, but I was just glad that we could go out and get a victory for our first game,” Jackson said. “The way we did it, 79 points is pretty awesome. That’s awesome for Coach Locksley and our team, so it was good to get back out there.”
For the Bison, their game never really connected at all during the day and they put together just 15 yards of total offense in the first half.
