With the score tied at 26, Eagles senior Nate Freese was called upon to kick a 52-yard field goal. He missed — for the first time all year. But Maryland coach Randy Edsall requested a timeout an instant before the kick. The second try went right through the uprights as time expired.
Edsall got his first head coaching job at Connecticut in 1999. He took the program from the Football Championship Subdivision level to the Football Bowl Subdivision as a member of the Big East. He was the school's all-time leader in wins (74) and games coached (144).
