Washington Huskies clinch 2-0 win over Maryland in the Rose Bowl

Washington Husky fans cheered as their team took down the defending national champion Maryland Terrapins.

The Huskies beat the Terps 21-14 at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday, moving to 6-1 overall.

Washington’s first win of the season was a 35-14 blowout victory against a mediocre Maryland team that had lost five straight games.

Washington quarterback Zach Ertz was 8 of 12 for 146 yards and three touchdowns.

It was the Huskies third win over a ranked opponent in the last three weeks.

They have beaten the defending champ Florida State and the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide.

The Huskies had won their last five games.

Maryland finished the season with a 5-5 record and lost two games in a row.

They were 10-3 at home.

Maryland was 0-8 in conference play and 6-6 overall. 

Maryland has not won a bowl game since 2009. 

On Saturday, the Terrapin faithful gave their team a warm welcome.

They started the game with a touchdown pass to Dontay Davis on a play that was ruled a catch.

They added two touchdowns to put Maryland up 17-0 after the Terp defense made a pair of critical stops.

The Husky defense held Terrapiners quarterback Blake Sims to 2 of 9 passing for 29 yards.

Maryland had an opportunity to take the lead on a 21-yard touchdown run by sophomore running back Dwayne Washington.

The play was called back because of a holding penalty.

Washington ran the ball 26 times for 108 yards and a touchdown.

The Terrapino defense forced five turnovers.

Washington threw for 295 yards and two touchdowns, including a 1-yarder to Ertz in the second quarter.

Washington was a game-time decision because of an injury to senior quarterback Logan Thomas.
