After Maryland gets set to play Rutgers this Saturday, the Terps will host Michigan in another big game. The kickoff is now set for 3:30.
Maryland has pivotal games coming up as they try to reach another bowl birth. Sitting at 4-4 on the year, with 4 games remaining, Maryland can afford to go .500 to reach their goal. That is a worst case scenario. Of course, Maryland fans are hoping to finish out the season 4-0, but there is breathing room for the Terrapins. If the Terps can take down Rutgers on the road, (as they are favorites), and then beat Michigan at home, the Terps find themselves at that 6 win mark with 2 games left to play.
Michigan is a tough squad and no Big Ten game is easy for any team. The Wolverines are currently 6-2 overall and 3-2 in Big Ten play. Michigan is coming off a win over Rutgers, 35-14, and hosts Minnesota this week. Michigan has beaten the Terps in the last two meetings and the last time Maryland took down the Wolverines was in 2014.
The Terps look to reach .500 in Big Ten play with a win at Rutgers on Saturday. That game is set for 3:30 as well.
