Two Big 10 teams looking to take a step in the right direction of bowl eligibility meet on Saturday afternoon.
Both Maryland and Indiana sit at 3-4 as this is a huge game for both teams in terms of reaching that 6 win plateau.
When Maryland loses, they tend to blowup and lose in a big way.
The Terrapins have dropped 3 straight and 4 overall on the season as those losses have come by an average of 29.3 points.
This current three game skid has really brought light to their struggling defense. Maryland has given up a total of 137 points over these 3 games as they simply cannot slow anyone down.
It’ll come down to this run game for Maryland, as they simply need to find a way to keep this offense on the field and keep the momentum going. They look to Ty Johnson and Lorenzo Harrison III, as the duo has combined for 162 carries on the season.
Johnson has averaged nearly 7 yards per game and has 4 touchdowns to his credit and him getting going early on in this one will be key. This Hoosiers run defense has struggled at times, which should open up some gaps for the duo.
The Hoosiers have at least been competitive as of late, as they look to use that as some kind of silver lining heading into this one.
Indiana dropped games to Michigan and Michigan State by a combined 15 points. They took Michigan to overtime and led late against the Spartans before ultimately falling after a couple late touchdowns.
Still, Indiana has looked better and better as the weeks have gone on, but the offense has to find a way to finish drives.
They are averaging just 19 points per road game this season as they have struggled to punch it into the end zone once they get into opponents territory.
WR Luke Timian has been the main target as of late, as he will be a key player to watch here. Timian has 36 receptions on the season, which puts him 2nd on the team. Over the last 2 weeks, he’s grabbed 14 catches as his targets have gone up.
