The Wolverines cracked the Top 25 rankings and will get a chance to make their surge up as they travel to Maryland for a Big 10 clash.
Michigan took it to the Cougars at home last week with a 31-0 beatdown.
As for the Terrapins, they were on the receiving end of a beatdown as they were smacked around by West Virginia.
Kickoff is set for 8:00 PM on Big Ten Network.
Everyone in the nation knew head coach Jim Harbaugh would eventually make quite the impact on the Michigan Wolverines. While the nation questioned him and the team after their Week 1 loss to Utah, those questions have since been removed and Michigan finds itself in the Top 25.
Michigan is ranked 2nd nationally in total defense and has allowed just 1 touchdown over their last 11 quarters.
Offensively, De’Veon Smith had 125 rush yards and a touchdown in the win against BYU. Smith has been a solid offensive threat all season long and has taken some pressure off the pass game for Michigan.
However, Smith suffered an ankle injury in the 3rd quarter against BYU. He is expected to play, but may start off limited depending on how the ankle feels.
As a team, the Wolverines are averaging 27.8 points per game.
Maryland’s loss to West Virginia was quite the eye opening one as it exposed some major flaws within the Terrapins.
The Terrapins were dominated in every aspect of the game as they were routed 45-6 in West Virginia.
Maryland has lost 2 of their last 3 by 21 points or more and called a major emergency meeting within the players to air everything out and discuss the lack of focus. Time will tell if that will work, but if Maryland continues to play on the level they’ve been at, things will be ugly all year.
The Terrapins are led by RB Brandon Ross. The RB ran for 130 yards and has overall rushed for 1943 yards.
