The final whistle has yet to be blown, but Ji’Ayir Brown may have just dealt the knockout blow to the Maryland Terrapins. Stepping in front of a pass from Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa, Brown timed his movement perfectly to pick off a pass in the red zone and there was nobody anywhere in the proximity to stop Brown from going the distance.

With Penn State up 24-14, Maryland was moving the football well and once again in a position to put points on the board as time was beginning to run thin. But Penn State’s red zone defense has been stellar all season long, and Brown has been a part of that success time and time again.

Brown timed the pass perfectly and had nothing but empty space in front of him with most of the Maryland offense already situated on the opposite end of the field in a red zone situation.

The Brown pick-six was the first Penn State touchdown not scored by wide receiver Jahan Dotson in the game. Dotson set a new school record for single-game receiving yardage (242 yards), with three touchdowns on top of it.
