Vote for University of Maryland's 'Pontiac Game Changing Performance' and the Terrapins Could Win $5,000
Nov. 13, 2006
In an emotional and hard-fought game on both sides of the ball, Maryland overcame a stifling Hurricane run defense and held on for a critical 14-13 win. The 23rd-ranked Terrapins earned a "Pontiac Game Changing Performance" nomination when receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey reeled in a pass from Sam Hollenbach and streaked down the sideline for the game winning 96-yard touchdown. It was the second time these two Terps connected for a touchdown and is the longest pass play in Maryland history.
Now it's up to Maryland fans to determine if the Terrapins earned the "Pontiac Game Changing Performance" for the eleventh week of the 2006 NCAA Football Season.
