Coming off a season filled with turmoil, Maryland is off to a flying start under new head coach D.J. Durkin. The Terrapins are 4-0 and opened Big Ten play with a dominating 50-7 victory over Purdue at Maryland Stadium.

Sophomore running back Ty Johnson had a monster game for Maryland, rushing for 204 yards and a couple touchdowns on only seven carries to earn the Uplifting Athletes Player of the Week award.

Johnson scored on touchdowns runs of 8 and 48 yards and averaged a staggering 29.1 yards per carry for a Terrapins ground game that pounded out 400 yards against the Boilermakers.

Maryland has scored 50 or more points in two of its four victories and is averaging 43.3 points per game. The Maryland Chapter of Uplifting Athletes is scheduled to hold its Touchdown Pledge Drive to support the rare disease community for its home game October 15 against Minnesota.
