COLLEGE PARK – You can’t fight the Funk.
Maryland freshman running back Jake Funk scored his first collegiate touchdown Saturday in the Terps’ 52-13 dismantling of Howard in the season opener at Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium.
The 2015 All-Sentinel Offensive Player of the Year from Damascus helped first-year Maryland head coach DJ Durkin capture his career victory.
“(It’s a) great day for our program,” said Durkin. “A great win for us, a great way to start.”
