How to Watch Michigan vs. Maryland

How to Watch Michigan vs. Maryland

Peters has completed 68% of his passes for 184 yards and two touchdowns and no interceptions this season. Michigan (8-2, 5-2) is in a three-way tie for second place in the Big Ten East Division, with Penn State and Michigan State. The Terrapins have lost four of their last five games overall.

Maryland (4-6, 2-5) was starting its fourth different quarterback this season, transfer Ryan Brand, a former walk-on.

Sure, desperate times call for desperate measures, but faking a punt deep in your own territory early in the second quarter when the game is not close to being out of hand is simply a prescription for the game getting there even faster. Brand was 16 for 35 for 136 yards. Peters is now 3-0 as the starter.

In one particularly embarrassing sequence, Lorenzo Harrison badly overthrew Brand with lots of running room ahead of the quarterback, and three plays later, caught a pass from Brand and managed to lose 14 yards.

The Terps stumbled all over themselves in an ugly first half and didn't give a real hint of competing with the Wolverines until it was too late to make things interesting.


Michigan: This lopsided victory should thrust Michigan into the Top 20 and provide added momentum for their final two games against Wisconsin and Ohio State.

The Michigan Wolverines got out to a hot start in this game scoring the first two touchdowns of the game in the first half.

Maryland: The Terrapins wrap up their road schedule at Michigan State, ranked 13th before Saturday's 48-3 loss to Ohio State.

Maryland lost their last game, a 31-24 setback to Rutgers.
