A Big 10 clash between the Hoosiers and Terrapins holds major implications for only the Hoosiers here on Saturday.
At just 4 wins, Indiana will need wins in their final 2 games to grab a chance at getting invited into a bowl game.
As for Maryland, they continue to struggle in the Big 10 and have compiled just two wins this year. They will try to play the role of spoiler to the Hoosiers post season chances.
Indiana sits at 0-6 in the Big 10 and will need to beat two Big 10 foes in order to find themselves in a bowl game. Don’t necessarily write this team off just yet as they nearly took out #3 Ohio State on their home field in the middle of the season.
However, is this the same Indiana Hoosiers team that has dropped 6 in a row after starting 4-0 this year. While their focus will be on Maryland this week, a win here would set up a date with Purdue in the finale to determine their fate.
Indiana has taken some opponents to the brink this year. Ohio State was mentioned already, but they also fell to Iowa by just 8 and to Michigan last week by just 7 in double overtime.
RB Jordan Howard continues to be the backbone of this team as he surpassed the 1000 mark this season. Howard is the 11th Hoosier to rush for over the 1000 yard mark in school history and he did it in style.
Howard rushed for 238 yards last week, against a defense that was only allowing 80 yards on the ground per game.
Like their counterpart Indiana, the Terrapins are the other Big 10 team without a conference win.
Maryland has dropped 7 in a row and 5 of those have come against ranked opponents. While the Hoosiers have kept games close against bigger competition, the Terrapins have not kept anything close.
Maryland’s closest game during their losing streak came against Wisconsin as they fell 31-24. This Terrapins team averages just 22.2 points for and 32.5 against.
In terms of yards, things are just as bad for Maryland. They rank dead last in the Big 10 with 336 yards per game and they’ve thrown for 28 interceptions as a team. 12 of those interceptions have come from QB Perry Hills.
With 8 touchdowns to his credit, Hills has compiled just 985 yards passing and a completion percentage of 50.0 percent.
Maryland is just 2-4 SU at home this year, but have also compiled a 4-2 ATS record for backers.
