Tajh Boyd struggled early but finished strong completing 11 of his last 12 passes and leading the Tigers to scores on their final six drives as they put 56 points on the board.
“I just came out a little sluggish. I can’t explain it at all. It is kind of one of those things where you just have to dig down inside yourself internally and just find out what you are made of. I am glad the guys stuck beside me. I was never concerned we were going to lose the game. That is kind of a positive for the whole team. We came in at the halftime and we said we just have to do what we can control and take everything from there,” said Boyd.
Did Tajh expect to get such a battle from the Terps?
“They are a great team and really well coached. We knew we would ge their best shot and the guys pushed through and got it done. I am definitely glad with the way we handled it but there are still things that we need to work on,” said Boyd.
Was there any panic from the Tigers down 35-17 in the third quarter?
“No, not at all. It was just one of those things where we just had to keep working and keep pushing and things were going to work out,” said Boyd.
How does Tajh enjoy playing with a player like Sammy Watkins?
“He is definitely a great player. I just feel blessed. He is beyond his years as far as age goes,” said Boyd.
