Which Maryland team shows up Saturday afternoon at University Park? The Terrapins looked atrocious in a 43-3 loss at Northwestern, but were dynamic in last Friday’s 45-44 win over Minnesota.
Penn State is a huge -25 point favorite in this meeting, despite starting the season 0-2. Last week’s 38-25 loss at home to Ohio State was expected, but the Nittany Lions were also upset 36-35 at Indiana in game one.
All eyes are on Maryland QB Taulia Tagovailoa on Saturday afternoon. Tagovailoa struggled mightily in the opener, going 14/25 for 95 yards and 3 INT, in what was his first college start. Things changed last week though.
Tagovailoa was a one man wrecking crew against the Golden Gophers, going 26/35 for 394 yards and 3 TD while adding 64 yards and 2 scores on the ground. Minnesota has struggled on defense, but that’s a great performance.
The Maryland offense shouldn’t have any concerns against a Penn State defense that has allowed 36 and 38 points in their first two games. The same cannot be said about the Terrapins defense though.
Maryland was bowled over for 325 yards on the ground in week one against Northwestern, and didn’t get much better last week as the Golden Gophers churned out 262 rush yards.
Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State should be able to run the ball at will on Saturday, and oddsmakers are expecting some points to be scored with a betting total of 64.5. The Nittany Lions had 250 on the ground vs. Indiana but just 47 last week vs. OSU.
The Nittany Lions run a lot of read options with QB Sean Clifford, and he was the leading rusher against the Hoosiers with 17 carries for 119 yards. OSU figured out Penn State last week though, and Clifford was held to 5 yards on 18 carries.
Penn State gave away their season opener in the loss to Indiana, mostly thanks to three missed field goals. Otherwise the PSU defense was solid, holding Indiana to 41 yards on 26 carries as well as just 170 yards through the air.
The Nittany Lions were exposed on defense last week however, but that’s going to happen against Ohio State. The Buckeyes rattled off 208 yards rushing, and Justin Field was 28/34 with 4 TD passes.

Free Week 10 NCAA Football Prediction:
It’s very much possible that Tagovailoa and the Maryland offense regresses to their season opening performance against Northwestern, but 25 points is a nice barrier.
Free NCAA Betting Pick: Maryland +25
Penn State hasn’t exactly been great against the number, even at home.
