We have reached week seven of the college football season, and most teams are now playing the conference portion of their schedule.
It’s a Big Ten showdown in this one at the Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium.
Two teams really needing a win will face off in this one when the Northwestern Wildcats make the trip to College Park to take on the Maryland Terrapins.
Coming into the season the Northwestern Wildcats were a popular pick to be a dark horse team, and many expected they would have a really nice season.
But at this point of this season they are desperate for a win, and if they were to lose this game they would fall two games under .500.
They only have two wins so far this year, and the wins were against Bowling Green, and Nevada, two teams that aren’t every good.
Their three losses have come against Wisconsin, Penn State and Duke. Now all three of those teams were good, but the Wildcats really struggled in all three games.
Against the Badgers they at least were able to keep it close for three quarters before the Badgers pulled it out in the end.
For the Wildcats a lot of the issues have come on the defensive end of the field, especially against the better teams.
In the three losses they have given up at least 31 points in each of the games.
To win this game the defense needs to be good. At times the Terrapins offense can be explosive and the Wildcats need to try and slow that down.
On the other side of this match up is the Maryland Terrapins who have had an up and down season, and a lot of the downs have been the results of ACL’s.
They are on their third string quarterback because the first two quarterbacks tore their ACLs. In the first start against the Gophers Max Bortenschlager looked really good throwing for over 150 yards and two touchdowns, but in the last start against the Buckeyes he really struggled.
He only threw for 16 yards before suffering a hand injury. He is officially questionable for this game, and if he can’t go they will be down to their fourth string quarterback.
To win this game the offense needs to get rolling early. Against the Buckeyes the offense really struggled and that can’t be the case again in this one if they want to pull the upset.
